In a hometown version of Footloose, Seattle bar owners are down in Olympia this afternoon, arguing their case to repeal a 9.5 percent tax on ticket sales for events that promote dancing (big-venue concerts weirdly excluded). The bill that the nightlife industry is testifying in support of today, SB 5613, would clarify that the sales tax should not be applied to "the opportunity to dance provided by an establishment in exchange for a cover charge." I've written about this issue tons. Google that shit.

You can follow along with the testimony below (the Senate Ways and Means committee meeting begins at 3:30 but there are a bunch of bills on the docket).
