Columbia rejects 2 percent tax measure

Voters in Columbia have overwhelmingly rejected a proposed 2 percent restaurant and lodging tax.

In unofficial returns from Tuesday's special election, 107 people voted in favor while 522 opposed the measure.

The tax increase would have required a 60 majority to pass.

Affidavit ballots still have to be counted.
