Video Lottery And Cell Phone Tax Cleared To Be Placed On Ballot

KELO-TV is reporting that the State Supreme Court has voted 5-0 to allow voters to decide legislation that would repeal video lottery and cell phone taxes.
Attorney General Larry Long had instructed Secretary of State Chris Nelson not to put the measures on the ballot, saying a prior court decision didn't allow for a public vote on initiated measures, especially those that would take away state revenue sources.
The combined income sources bring in about $106 million in revenue for the state that would have to be replaced somehow if both measures are passed.
