Girl Scout cookie "crackdowns" continue

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - First they weren't allowed to sell cookies at their founder's birthplace, but now more cookie crackdowns on Girl Scouts could be coming from the state level.

A bill proposed to Georgia lawmakers wants Girl Scout Cookies to have a sales tax.

Residents pay taxes on most everything else, but not those and that's a cause for concern for the organization's leaders.

The change could impact troop budgets and tie up money for camps and other programs.

If the proposal passes, the Scouts would have to figure out the sales tax for each of Georgia's 122 counties and adjust the cookies' prices accordingly.

WTOC will let you know what happens next.
