FreedomWorks Applauds Tennessee Governor and State Lawmakers for Rejecting Online Sales Tax Hike

Washington, DC- FreedomWorks applauds the wise decision of the Tennessee State Legislature to reject SB 0529, legislation that would have increased taxes and put job growth and investment in jeopardy by forcing the online company Amazon to collect sales tax.  Stopping this over-reaching legislation will save nearly 3,000 full-time jobs and 4,000 seasonal jobs in Tennessee, and allow consumers to make online purchases from Amazon without higher taxes.

Supreme Court Hints that Greenhouse Gas Case Will Be Dismissed

Washington, DC- Today, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in American Electric Power v. Connecticut, a lawsuit initiated by states suing power companies for emitting greenhouse gases.  The states contend these emissions are a public health hazard and the courts should allow nuisance suits to mitigate such harms. The court, however, seemed skeptical of such arguments, pointing to both the unwieldy nature of such suits and the fact that the Environmental Protection Agency is more aptly suited to address any such concerns.
