The bill creates an additional exemption from the tax on admissions for Major League Soccer all-star games.
The bill also changes the current exemption for events related to the National Basketball Association All-Star weekend. The bill repeals reference to specific event names, and instead exempts NBA all-star events produced by the NBA and “held at a facility such as an arena, convention center, or municipal facility.”
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2014.
Vote: Senate 37-2; House 114-0
