Florida Lawmakers Vote to End Tampon Tax

Florida will eliminate taxes charged on tampons under a measure passed by the state Legislature on Tuesday. The Florida House of Representatives and Senate approved the bill with a 109-3 and 34-4 vote, respectively. The bill will become law if approved by Gov. Rick Scott in January, exempting feminine hygiene products from taxation in Florida. Creed & Gowdy filed a law suit on July 6, 2016, alleging that the tax charged on tampons and sanitary pads - products used exclusively by women - is discriminatory and unconstitutional.
