​Revenue Activities


As the non-major party Vice Chair on the Senate Finance & Revenue Committee, it is my responsibility to keep minority and non-aligned 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 has historically worked 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.  Then we all should ask why big corporations get special tax breaks to include billion dollar so-called nonpofits hiding behind the law paying themselves millions in salaries and benefits.  This page is my effort to keep the public informed on what I am doing either myself 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.  ​
