Hispanic Chamber Backs Sales Tax Increase

The Lubbock Hispanic Chamber of Commerce announced Wednesday that it supports the proposed 3/8 of a cent sales tax increase. Members of the chamber say it's a good plan for business because it will promote economic development in Lubbock.

According to the Lubbock City Council, the sales tax increase would fund economic development efforts and reduce property taxes by 15%. The election for the sales tax increase proposal is set for November 4th.
