Poll: Local option sales tax still popular

Though a bill to allow local option sales taxes appears dead in the legislature, a Bluegrass Poll released Thursday shows the plan continues to garner strong public support. The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA, showed 63 percent of Kentuckians in favor of amending the state constitution to give voters the right to approve or reject specific local taxes to pay for projects, 23 percent opposed and 14 percent unsure. It has majority support in every demographic breakdown measured by the pollsters.
