A few days ago U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, along with Sen. Sununu and Sen. McConnell led the charge to pass a seven year extension of the Internet tax moratorium through the Senate chamber. Yesterday the extension passed Congress. This came at a time when many members of Congress were trying to let the moratorium expire at the November deadline, with high hopes that local governments will tack on tiny taxes as a source of new revenue.
Senator Ron Wyden has always been vocal about his fight against the Internet tax, and his recent efforts have scored a huge victory. Taxpayers around Oregon thank you Wyden (and we can say that on this website a little more freer because of your work.)
