Short Take: Lott will not push Net Tax Freedom Act

Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott said he would not push forward the Internet Tax Freedom Act, as long as local officials objected to it, according to the Associated Press. The bill has been endorsed by President Clinton and has gained bipartisan support in both houses of Congress, but local and state leaders argue that it takes away their constitutional right to raise revenue through taxation.
