How much revenue would be lost in FL if all the snow birds decided to head to Cali instead?

I don't know. They don't vote here. They don't pay license fees for tags. The onlt tax they pay is sales tax and maybe property tax, if they own. But most are so old they qualify for all of the exemptions this state allows.

I guess what I'm saying is, not just taxes, but they purchase products from FL business owners as well, stimulating the economy of your state. I only say this as half of WI is in FL right now.

In my area there are more Canadians, Michicans (like mexicans, but from Michigan), New Jerseys, New Yorkers and new hampshires than Wisconsins. But I see your point. They do keep some service businesses floating. Some lay off after 'season'. I still hate em! Driving truly is dangerous with them around.

lol. The killed a lot of little polyesters to make them pants.
It really is scary having these people on cell phones. It's like having a bunch of drunk old people on the road. I think the threat level goes up exponentially. When will government get serious and ban cell phones in the car? It needs to happen.

Sex is like air. It's really not that important until you're not getting any.

Don't worry about what I worry about.
