Fighting the Ban on a State Income Tax

The new resolution to BAN a state income or payroll tax, SJR 18, is on the calendar of the House Finance Subcommittee for Wednesday, April 27 at 11:00 AM CDT in Legislative Plaza hearing room 29. Anyone is welcome to attend and show their opposition to this bill.
This bill is pandering to millionaire campaign contributors while leaving the bill for our government and vital services to be paid by working people with future increases in the sales tax.

Speak up for REVENUE WITH JUSTICE FOR ALL and please email and/or phone your representative and members of the House Finance Subcommittee to let them know that this is NOT a responsible or reasonable bill to pass.
