"No man's life, liberty, or happiness are safe when the legislature is in session." -- Mark Twain
As we approach the halfway mark, let me update you on our legislative priorities:
- Nothing yet! Sales taxes on services (a tax on tax): Lt Gov. Anthony Brown said this would not be introduced by the governor this year (remember last year?) and at this point has not been introduced by either House or Senate.
- Being decided in courts! CPA and business liability (lawsuit lottery): The ongoing battle to retain contributory negligence versus the trial lawyers' attempts at comparative fault (two related bills filed -- HB 1156 and SB 819).
- Passed! State Board of Accountancy Reauthorization Bill SB238 / HB209 State Board of Public Accountancy - Sunset Extension and Program Evaluation.
- Ongoing: Testimony on tax compliance bills as needed by our State Tax Committee.
