  • Support legislation to close the online sales tax loophole and pass e-fairness legislation to place brick-and-mortar community businesses on a level playing field with online retailers. Allowing local governments the flexibility to collect the taxes already owed to them on remote online purchases removes an unfair disadvantage for local businesses, while helping cities close budget gaps. Collecting owed sales taxes means more money for basic services, such as streets and police officers.
  • Protect the viability of municipal bonds by opposing legislation that would limit the traditional tax exemption for municipal bonds and supporting legislation to classify municipal bonds as high-quality liquid assets. These characteristics of municipal bonds make them attractive in the marketplace, saving local taxpayers millions of dollars in interest.
