State Budget Woes Mean Opportunity for Progressive Tax Advocates

State Budget Woes Mean Opportunity for Progressive Tax Advocates

From UFE's March 2008 E-News

The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) reports that over half of the 50 states anticipate budget problems in the fiscal year 2009. The combined budget shortfall could be over $37 billion. To the extent that new taxes will be needed, there are major opportunities to make them progressive. Helping out in some states will be UFE’s Tax Fairness Organizing Collaborative (TFOC). This network enables sharing and learning among different statewide grassroots organizations that are educating and organizing for fair and adequate taxation. Through the TFOC, state tax advocates receive training, tools and other support to help them as they push for progressive tax policies. See if your state is in the CBPP report.
