The Nation

October 14, 1987

Florida Gov. Bob Martinez carried out his promise to veto a bill that would have thrown Florida's services tax controversy to voters in a Jan. 12 referendum. The Republican governor promised a veto last week after the bill was passed at the end of a three-week special legislative session. The governor called lawmakers back to Tallahassee for another special session that began Monday. Martinez once championed the 5% sales tax on services and advertising but now wants it repealed in the wake of a media blitz against the new levy by the advertising industry.
