Earlier this month, legislators discussed raising the tax on beer. The current 2 cent per gallon tax hasn't been raised in the state since it came into effect during Prohibition and Wyoming's beer tax is the lowest in the country. The national average is 28 cents per gallon.
A sluggish economy doesn't leave much for spending money on beer and yet, the state's revenue is feeling the pinch of less federal funding helping state governments.
This week's Bank of Sheridan/Sheridan Media Poll Question is: “Should the legislature increase the current two cents per gallon sales tax on beer?”
