In a letter to the editor to this paper on October 4th Ellen Waxman who owns an art gallery in Wickford, argues that the legislature should âdeclare a state-wide sales tax exemption on artâ. This, she asserts, would âspark Rhode Islandâs economyâ. Just how this would happen is unstated.
In this effort, state Senator James Sheehan âhas agreed to sponsor legislation along this idea if he is reelectedâ. Great. Just what we need is more legislation that would favor a special interest, in this case owners of art galleries.
