ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposal by Mike Amyx, mayor of Lawrence, Kansas, for a one percentage point increase in sales tax in the city. The proposal would raise the city's overall sales tax rate to 8.3% from 7.3%. Except in two special taxing districts in Roeland Park and Olathe, this is higher than anywhere else in the state. According to the Mayor, the sales tax increase could raise around $120 million over a decade.
