Last week I wrote about the Tennessee County Services Association (TCSA) sending a newsletter telling local elected officials to call their legislators in support of the IMPROVE act. This legislation increases the gas tax and raises the non-commercial vehicle registration fee $5 annually.
This organization is funded by you, the taxpayers. Here is a copy of the meeting minutes for the meeting that the TCSA voted to support the IMPROVE act. The TCSA website says the board endorsed the legislation. Since the meeting minutes don’t give a roll call vote of the TCSA Board, I asked if any voted against supporting the legislation that will soon be law. Executive Director David Connor wrote, “The board vote was a voice vote. No members voted against supporting the measure and no one asked to be recorded as a no.” The minutes contain a listing of the members that were present and absent from the meeting.
Do you think your tax money should be spent to fund an association that supports/endorses raises taxes and fees on you?
