In times of economic turmoil, when states run budget deficits and when programs are being cut back and shut down, legislators often scour the statutes of their jurisdictions in an attempt to find someone, somewhere who isn't being taxed.

It would, of course, be even rarer to find an industry whose cries to be taxed went consistently unanswered.
