    SUPPORT HB 445: Reducing Gross Receipts by 50%

Most states don’t have the hidden sales tax – aka gross receipts tax.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) laws are instrumental in keeping our government in check by uncovering instances of fraud, waste, and abuse. Senate Bill 155 will inhibit the public’s ability to access information about state government.
