Richard withdraws bowling bill
HB150, which would have eliminated sales tax on bowling, as well as bowling equipment and supplies, was withdrawn by its sponsor Rep. Ron Richard, R-Joplin, today.
The bill, which was mentioned in the Dec. 18 Turner Report, was the only piece of legislation prefiled by Richard for the 2007 legislative session.
As I pointed out, Richard works with C & N Bowl Corporation, which has two Joplin bowling locations, as well as three in Arkansas, and is on the Legislative Committee of the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America.
