Sales tax numbers add up to bad news in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Newschannel 11 has good news and bad news on the Lubbock economy. 

The good news is LEDA and Lubbock National Bank released their report this morning showing that Lubbock is holding steady at a time when many cities suffer from an ongoing recession. 

The bad news is that right after the report was released, the state comptroller released her most recent sales tax figures.  It shows that many communities on the South Plains have lower sales tax payments for March 2009 as compared with March of last year.  Lubbock is down a little less than half a percent.
