Lawmakers are toying with the idea of charging an additional five dollar entry fee to those who go to strip clubs. Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon says the fee will be added onto what club goers already pay at the door.
Many club owners are opposed to the idea. They say the extra charge could potentially kill smaller stip joints and put their staffs out of work. Only clubs that serve alcohol will be required to pay. The state will collect the extra cash and use to help victims of sexual assault.
