Conservative Group Opposes Tuscaloosa County Bills

On Wednesday, May 6, the West Alabama Republican Assembly issued a press release objecting to two pieces of local legislation.

Tuscaloosa government officials have asked their legislature to make a sales tax increase, on a tax which was supposed to expire, a permanent tax on the people.

Alabama Assembly President Joshua Wyatt objects and wrote:

“In short, the temporary sales tax is to be made permanent because when is a temporary tax ever good enough? Why have a temporary tax voted on by the people when you can get the elected officials to bypass the people and make a permanent tax? Initially I thought that the schools must be hard up for money and need this permanent tax hike, but upon examination of the financial numbers the schools appear to be well funded and have funds for their proposed projects. They may not have it all upfront, but the temporary sales tax was passed initially so that the entities could prioritize a list of projects and work towards that end. But now it’s been decided that we need to make this tax permanent because the hard working taxpayers aren’t paying enough. On top of that it will be made permanent without one single guideline or requirement. Not one stipulation or approved plan. We are giving the ‘powers that be’ a blank check. Spend it how you like it boys and we the lowly working class stiffs will keep working to give you more. Oh yeah, I forgot the best part. You and I don’t even get a vote on the matter. It was introduced in Montgomery where we now know that common sense has become as rare and elusive as spotting Big Foot knitting a sweater. Thank you West Alabama Delegation. Hey, I’m fair and I’m friendly. If you want to renew the temporary sales tax again for another 10 years put it up for a vote by the people. Don’t sneak it through in Montgomery where we don’t have a chance to vote on it.”
