Strip Club Customers To Pay Surcharge Fee

A five dollar surcharge is legal. If you want to see someone strip in Lubbock County or anywhere else in Texas, you'll have to pay for it.

That's the word from a judge in Austin. Tuesday, the judge denied a request from the owners of Nude Entertainment Clubs for a temporary injunction to block a five-dollar strip club fee. 

The new fee is a customer surcharge which goes into effect January 1st. The 2007 legislature approved the fee which is expected to raise $44 million dollars for sexual assault prevention programs and health care for the uninsured.
