Spa tax aginners lose another

Posted By on Wed, Dec 17, 2008 at 1:44 PM

Word comes that a special judge has thrown out a lawsuit challenging a bond issue election in which Hot Springs voters went 3-1 for using the 3 percent tourism tax to pay for $1.2 million worth of heat and air work at the Mid-America Science Museum. Challenging that tax is a hobby with a certain group of soreheads in the Spa area. Judge Russell Rogers' letter ruling said statutes were followed and there was no "chicanery" in the process.
