Should Wyoming tax bars, restaurants, museums and hotels to pay for tourism promotion?

September 13, 2017

The Wyoming tourism industry says it wants to tax itself in order to cover the cost of promoting the Cowboy State to visitors around the country and world. But while legislators were generally supportive of the concept, the specifics may trip up the proposal.

"The devil will always be in the details," Rep. Cathy Connolly, D-Laramie, said at a meeting of the Joint Revenue Committee in this quiet mountain town, itself a tourism destination, on Tuesday.
