CNPA sales tax bill set for hearing

Legislation introduced on CNPA’s behalf by Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-Marin County), that would repeal the sales tax on newspapers, has been set for its first policy committee hearing in the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee on April 22.

The measure, AB 1776 would restore the newspaper sales tax exemption that was lost in 1990 in the legislative budget skirmish to address the then unprecedented $8 billion budget deficit.

CNPA governmental affairs staff will ask members to contact both their own representatives and the members of the Revenue and Tax Committee Please look to this Bulletin for critical dates for action, talking points and contact information for key legislators.
