A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

Louisiana Tax Free Preparedness Supplies Weekend Begins Tomorrow Joining Virginia; Why Don’t Other States, Feds Follow Suit?

May 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Louisiana’s Hurricane Preparedness Tax Holiday begins tomorrow. During the weekend, state residents can purchase preparedness-related products without paying sales tax. Virginia’s preparedness tax free week also wraps up on Sunday.

As these holidays are viewed as successful by Louisiana and Virginia, I do not understand why other states do not adopt the idea (and that the federal government explore ways to use the federal tax code to push citizen readiness).

In fact, the importance of preparedness was underscored yesterday by reports that the upcoming hurricane season may be very busy.
