Sponsor of streamlined sales tax wants it off ballot

One down and eight to go.

The Taxation and Budget Commisss has just struck one of the eight proposed amendments they've proposed for the November ballot. At the request of the sponsor, Commissioner Randy Miller, a vice president for the Florida Retail Federation, the commission will not put on the November ballot a proposal to streamline the sales and use tax by requiring that the state join with other states to reach an agreement to tax items subject to sales tax that are sold over the internet.

Miller said the amendment was no longer needed because Legislative leadres have given him assurances that it's important to them and "they plan on taking it up in the future, but not this session."
