[Alert from Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance -- ATTA]
On January 14, 2009, Delegate David Toscano submitted House Bill (HB) 2161 for consideration by the General Assembly. The bill would allow an eventual 20% increase in the Sales Tax we pay, to fund transportation spending.
ATTA articulated several reasons why the underlying premise of this bill is a bad idea. Please see our letter to the Albemarle Board of Supervisors, directly below.
HB 2161 was sent to a Finance Subcommittee today. Please contact the following members of this subcommittee today and ask them to vote NO on HB 2161.
The subcommittee will meet Wednesday, January 21, 2009 at about 2:00 p.m., so please call and / or email them immediately--and be sure to tell them you're from the
Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance!
