Looks like the state of Louisiana is about to make tampons a tax exempt item
quote:

A proposal to exempt feminine hygiene products and diapers from the state’s sales tax advanced to the full Senate Monday, clearing a committee hurdle that previously stopped the bill.

State Sen. JP Morrell, D-New Orleans, brought the legislation again in an effort to make products like tampons and diapers more affordable. The state already exempts from sales tax other essentials, Morrell noted, like prescription drugs.

“You cannot operate in society without diapers and without feminine hygiene products. It’s not possible,” he said. “For a poor family, $4 or $5 sends them to the diaper bank.”



quote:

The Senate Finance Committee passed the bill, SB 4, on a 6-3 vote. The committee has previously rejected the legislation, which has a price tag of an estimated nearly $10 million in lost tax revenue, though Morrell conceded that may be an under-estimation.

Well thank God. That will probably save the average lady 40 cents every 2 months

I'd be OK with all baby food/diaper products being tax-exempt but the feminine hygiene stuff has me scratching my head

This is a slippery slope and must have strings attached.

If women would stay pregnant they would waste money on period products.

Condoms, beard oils, and nose-hair clippers need to be tax free for the baws. It's only fair.

It truly is about damn time.
