Are these the same people who pushed tourists away? Bikers came every year and spent millions and now after they chased them out of MB their looking to bring in as stated from the article.."What we need in the way of support from Columbia is for us to be able to bring in the tourists," said Rep. Alan Clemmons. "[It's] for us to be able to bring in the taxable revenue that benefits the state." Bikers and vendors didn't bring in this so called "taxable revenue" in the past? I just have to laugh at how the politicians do business. It's time to wake up down south.. The politicians are starting to tell you whats good for you.. I guess you can't make your own decisions on who is a tourist and who isn't so the politicians will make it for you.
