As the ranking minority member on the Senate Finance & Revenue Committee, it is my responsibility to keep other minority members apprised of the committee's activities not just vote yes or no on bills in committee. On most technical issues regarding taxation the committee as a whole works well together, and in a bi-partisan manner. However, tax policy can become quite partisan if you are the taxpayer whose taxes are being raised while another taxpayer is getting a credit, deduction, or is not paying any taxes. Further, tax bills are not dreamed up then submitted but almost always involve work groups, extended discussions, and sometimes outright challenges. This page is my effort to keep the public informed on what I am doing either myself, or via the minority caucus, in regards to revenue present and future revenue policies.
To be very clear, this is not a Committee webpage, nor a group webpage, but what I am personally doing to represent citizens who both agree or disagree with any given revenue law, bill or policy.
