Statement on the House Repealing the “Tech Tax”

Today I released the following statement following the passage of H.3662, “An Act repealing the computer and software services tax” by the members of the Massachusetts House of Representatives:

“Today the House has taken pivotal action to strike an ill-advised tax that has the potential to seriously harm our economic recovery from a long and deep recession.  Thanks in large part to the leadership of House Republicans and their steadfast opposition to the technology tax, a necessary correction is taking shape on Beacon Hill, and I look forward to swift action by the Senate to confront and eliminate this measure.”
