Legislative committee expected to discuss temporary sales tax

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The debate over a temporary sales tax hike for Louisville heads to Frankfort.

A legislative committee will hear testimony in the state's capitol on Wednesday.

The proposal being discussed would allow local governments to let citizens decide on implementing a temporary sales tax to fund specific projects.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is in favor of local option sales taxes to pay for special projects.

The idea being discussed would allow ballot votes on whether to temporarily impose a sales tax of up to one-cent to pay for new parks, sidewalks, roads and buildings.
