WROX Radio, Clarksdale, Mississippi.From WROX:

The Mississippi House wants to spend more on tourism advertising.  On Wednesday the House voted 111-5 for House Bill 1102 which would earmark 3 cents of sales tax collections from hotels and restaurants for tourism advertising spending, about $11 million after a three-year phase-in.  The measure also creates a five-member advisory group, made up of directors of local convention and visitor bureaus and representatives of restaurants and hotels to advise the Mississippi Development Authority on how to spend advertising money.  The MDA currently spends about $3.8 million a year on advertising.

Note: It is unknown at this time if any of this proposed initiative will contribute to Clarksdale tourism, or not.
