CTIA-The Wireless Association® Statement On Introduction of Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act of 2013 in the U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and John Thune (R-SD) introduced the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act of 2013 Act, CTIA-The Wireless Association® President and CEO Steve Largent said:
"An affordable internet is vital to millions of American consumers and businesses, and Senators Wyden and Thune remain at the forefront of preserving this critical access to opportunity and information by introducing the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act of 2013. Wireless broadband was in its infancy when Congress passed the Internet Tax Freedom Act fifteen years ago and put the first temporary tax moratorium in place. Today, millions of Americans rely on wireless technology for myriad purposes in their everyday lives, and it's more important than ever to create a reasonable and permanent tax process on internet access. CTIA and its members look forward to working with Senators Wyden and Thune on behalf of all American internet users to ensure Congress will act on this important legislation before the current moratorium expires next year."
