WASHINGTON July 14, 2011 After the House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Wireless Tax Fairness Act (H.R. 1002), which would place a five year moratorium on any new taxes and fees imposed on wireless consumers’ monthly bill, CTIA-The Wireless Association ® Vice President of Government Affairs Jot Carpenter released this statement:
"CTIA greatly appreciates the effort by Chairman Smith and the Wireless Tax Fairness Act’s lead sponsors, Representatives Lofgren and Franks, to provide millions of American consumers with some much needed relief by putting a five-year freeze on new, discriminatory taxes and fees on their wireless bills. Today’s Judiciary Committee vote was an important step and we hope the full House moves as soon as possible to protect wireless consumers from additional taxes and fees."
