This State of Montana

    bill would funnel rental car, bed tax money into tourism industry

    which to me sounds like a very reasonable idea and great use of a tax that is collected from visitors in the first place, right? It’s a model used by many others, including Florida.

    Now, what beats me is that the state Commerce Director, who I would think has an interest in boosting the state economy, would prefer that more of that tax collected goes into funding incarceration. Sounds to me more like misappropriation of funds than anything else, unless, of course, he might attempt to have more visitors arrested and then they would pay for their own stay, right!
