A SALES TAX HOLIDAY ON BACK TO SCHOOL ITEMS IS BEING PROPOSED FOR THE FIRST WEEKEND IN AUGUST. SEN. KEVIN BACON SAYS THERE ARE BENEFITS TO BOTH PARENTS AND RETAILERS.

NONE OF OHIO'S NEIGHBORS HAVE A SALES TAX HOLIDAY FOR BACK TO SCHOOL. BACON HAS INTRODUCED THE IDEA BEFORE, BUT IT HAS NEVER BEEN APPROVED. HE FEELS BETTER ABOUT THIS TIME.
