Steve Martin believes that our system of financing municipal governments, primarily by retail sales tax collectiosn, must be adjusted to take into consideration the evolution of the retail sales industry. No longer a local phenomena, retail sales is now regional with the emergence of major malls and the Wal-Mart model of big box and discount stores. Steve Martin's plan, known as the "One Percent Solution" which would allow shoppers from areas which are not retail "hubs" to realize some benefit from retail purchases made in other communities has received wide spread interest. A major reform requiring a vote of the people, the "One Percent Solution" now has the backing of influential legislators in both parties and from major interest groups.
