ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the National League of Cities' call on its members to oppose pending U.S. telecommunications legislation. A provision in the bill would make permanent a temporary federal ban that prevents state and local governments from taxing Internet access services. Another provision in the measure would prohibit imposing any new state and local government cellular phone taxes for the next three years.
