HB903 (Falcons Stadium Tax Bill) Passed Senate

According to the AJC, "In a 42-4 vote, the state Senate on Tuesday passed a bill designed to make negotiations to keep the Atlanta Falcons downtown easier by extending hotel/motel tax collections for the Georgia Dome."

HB 903 would move the sunset date of the taxes for the Dome, currently pegged at 2020, to 2045.  It was sent back to the House because of an ammendment that was tagged on to it to allow Macon/Bibb County to increase their hotel/motel tax to help the Georgia music and sports halls of fame.
