Florida Lawmaker Seeks Toilet Paper Tax
Florida's Legislature is flush with good ideas. Sen. Al Lawson's involves a 2 cent-per-roll tax on toilet paper to pay for wastewater treatment and help small towns upgrade their sewer systems.
The Democratic lawmaker's pay-as-you-go bill has been the source of many jokes — bathroom humor you might say — but he says the issue is a serious one, especially in some of the fast-growing Panhandle coastal counties in his district.
Al Lawson is an asswipe.
