The Nation

October 13, 1987

Florida lawmakers trickled back to the Capitol in Tallahassee to try again to resolve a dispute over a new services tax, as one legislator filed suit contending the governor is holding the Legislature hostage and has exceeded his authority. State Rep. Elvin Martinez of Tampa asked the state's Supreme Court to stay the special session. The Legislature, called back into session for a fourth consecutive week, convened long enough to recess until later this week. The tax, which took effect July 1, extended Florida's 5% sales tax to advertising, to services provided by accountants, lawyers and engineers.
