An emphatic “no” to an expanded sales tax

Chamber members turned out in droves today to fight back against the proposed $165 million tax hike. During testimony before the House Finance Committee, we presented in “gift wrapped” fashion the results of our cyber petition which included the names of more than 800 business people. Special thanks to all of you who took the time out of your day to offer feedback, to attend yesterday’s news conference and to testify publicly today. The Senate Finance Committee takes up the measure tomorrow, and we will be there to repeat and reinforce our message.

—  Laurie White, president
