Fw: Urgent ALERT-Meeting Notice
- ----- Original Message -----From: Tennessee Tax RevoltSubject: Urgent ALERT-Meeting NoticeBy far THE MOST important statewide issue for Tennessee taxpayers is the proposed Taxpayer Bill of Rights amendment to the state constitution. We MUST get this amendment passed if we are to have any hope of putting citizens and taxpayers back in control of the state. Right now over 400 registered lobbyists at the General Assembly spend well over $24 million per year to represent everyone EXCEPT taxpayers. This MUST change.How can we all help??
