During the Special one-day Emergency Legislative Session to address emergency coronavirus and racial injustice issues, Oregon lawmakers will be considering a cell-phone tax. Based on the previous cell-tax plan from 2019, the projected $5 million tax is expected to tax people’s private cell-phones to pay for private landline broadband service for rural Oregonians.
But the Federal Government already authorized over $60 million of broadband funds for Oregon without raising out taxes.
Where is that money going?
Is this $60 million going to be wasted just like the $60+ million that the feds sent to the Employment Dept. to fix our computers but never did?
Remember, cell-phone taxes hurt the poor and homeless the most.
