4751863 story Internet Tax Approved By Louisiana House 305 Posted by timothy on Friday June 05, 2009 @08:18AM from the well-they-have-a-napoleonic-system dept. Stinky Litter Box writes "WWL-TV in New Orleans reports that the Louisiana House voted 81-9 on Thursday to propose that a '15-cent monthly surcharge should be levied on Internet access across Louisiana to fight online criminal activity.' Can you say 'slippery slope?' The good news is that Gov. Jindal opposes such a tax. Full disclosure: I grew up in south Louisiana and worked for WWL-TV in the late '70s."
