Good news for our friends in Denver, Colorado. Their city council just voted to remove local sales tax on tampons and pads as well as other similar products. That's a 4.3% savings. They still have to pay state tax, but it's a step in the right direction for something needed. Could Yakima do something like this, too?

I ask because saving money is always a good thing and these are items that ladies need. Along these lines, I also don't think they should have a tax on toilet paper or toothpaste.

9news was the one I heard this story from and got me thinking that Yakima should do the same.

C'mon, Yakima city council, make it happen!
