(BLOOMINGTON) - Monroe County officials debated for more than five hours last week before adopting a Food and Beverage Tax.

The 1 percent tax on prepared foods and beverages tax passed 4-3.

The tax will be used for the expansion of the Bloomington Convention Center.

The approved tax has been controversial, drawing criticism from many Monroe County citizens since its proposal. The tax, called the 'Zombie Tax' by the Monroe County Citizens Against the Food and Beverage Tax, does not have a clause stating when the tax will end or what the funds with be spent on after the Convention Center improvements are complete.
