HAWKS TAX BILL MAKES PROGRESS

     A 3% car rental tax bill to help finance infrastructure
costs near a proposed new Hawks arena was passed by the GA
Senate, according to this morning's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.  The
legislation was requested by the city as part of a $215M project
with Turner Broadcasting to replace the Omni.  The tax is
expected to generate $5.2M a year through 2038 (Lucy Soto,
ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/14).
