CEI Joins Coalition in Support of the Wireless Tax Fairness Act
CEI has signed a letter along with a coalition of other free-market organizations in support of the Wireless Tax Fairness Act (H.R. 1002/S. 543). This legislation would put a five-year freeze on attempts by state and local governments to raise taxes on broadband and wireless telecommunications services. Wireless services are already highly taxed and increasing costs for consumers will make it harder for many households and businesses to maintain access to critical communication networks.
