Press Release

FIGHTING AGAINST NEW TAXES IN OHIO!

06/01/2003

CSE believes that lawmakers, like families, should adjust spending when times are lean. CSE in Ohio is urging state legislators and Governor Taft to exercise fiscal restraint and stand firm against an increase in the state sales tax.

CSE’s Volunteer Chapter Leader in Ohio, Joe Curran, has been busy both personally contacting, and working with other concerned taxpayers to contact, members of the Ohio Legislature to stop the Ohio tax increase.

TAKE ACTION NOW-- Contact your Ohio Legislators!

Based on his findings, Joe has been able to classify these legislators in one of the following 3 categories:
1. FIRMLY AGAINST any tax increase

2. LEANING AGAINST any tax increase

3. LEANING FOR OR UNKNOWN
