Globe fails to pick up on Richard story
Associated Press posted a story last night on the decision by Rep. Ron Richard, R-Joplin, to withdraw his bill which would have eliminated the sales tax on bowling equipment and supplies.
A number of state newspapers picked it up, including the Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian and Springfield News-Leader. So far, I haven't been able to find a mention of the story on the Joplin Globe website or in its print edition.
Richard, of course, is the owner of five bowling facilities and would have benefited from the legislation.
