Rules Committee looks at infantry museum tax exemption

A bill expected to reach the Georgia House Rules Committee today would extend a sales tax exemption for the new infantry museum near Fort Benning.

House bill 189, sponsored by Rep. Richard Smith, R-Columbus, would extend the current exemption on construction-related sales for the National Infantry Museum from June 30, 2008, for another year. If it passes the Rules Committee, the bill will proceed to the floor of the House.
