Statement on the Senate Repealing the “Tech Tax”

Today I released the following statement regarding the passage of H.3662, “An Act repealing the computer and software services tax” by the members of the Massachusetts Senate by a roll call vote of 38-0:

“Thanks to a unanimous vote, the tech tax is further on its way to extinction.  Senate Republicans have never wavered in our opposition to this destructive revenue measure, and we welcome our colleagues to the effort to repeal it.  With the tax moving closer to defeat, we have a prime opportunity to insist on reform, accountability, and savings before further burdening taxpayers.  The time is now to change course, and focus on needed economic growth before it’s too late.”
