HOUSE OF BAD CARDS

52 politicians,
4 suits,
2 jokers,
... and a whole lot of facts.

Voted for Ordinary Taxpayers to Pay for Corporate Welfare

HB 5
"Relating to agreements authorizing a limitation on taxable value of certain property to provide for the creation of jobs and the generation of state and local tax revenue; authorizing fees; authorizing penalties."

HB 5 was not a taxpayer-friendly bill and properly received the nickname "corporate welfare bill."

Just read the public comments on the bill.
