Morgantown Dominion Post – As a counterpoint to the work of the Joint Select Committee on Tax Reform, members of a coalition of 22 groups gathered Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 15, to announce their Fair Taxation Principle to protect roads, children and seniors. Read
The members come from education, faith, labor and community organizations. Speakers talked about the principles and their goals.
Rick Wilson, with American Friends Service Committee presented the five principles, noting that they don’t promote specific tax changes.
Ted Boettner, with the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, worked with Wilson to prepare the group’s report.
He said tax reform should aim for “good schools, good infrastructure, a well-trained workforce and pushing more people out of poverty into the middle class.”
