hb 470 Increases the maximum rate of hotel occupancy tax authorized to be levied by the webster parish convention and visitors commission upon the occupancy of hotel rooms, motel rooms, and overnight camping facilities within the jurisdiction of the commission.

this bill calls for a whopping 100% tax increase from 2% to 4%.
