What does the state do to raise money without raising taxes? The state raises or imposes fees and licensure requirements, which cost money. Florida licenses manicurists, Realtors, interior designers and many more professions.
Why not exotic dancers? With licensure comes photo ID (like on a driver’s license or firearms permit), proof of age and the all-important fee. If the law required every exotic dancer to have a photo ID, would a 13-year-old have been allowed to perform nude at a Miami Beach strip club?
C’mon Tallahassee, do something right for a change.
