(Sacramento, CA) – Assemblymember Phil Ting (D–San Francisco) was tapped by Speaker Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) to serve as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation. A statement from Ting about the appointment follows.
“It’s time to take tax reform off the back burner. We must adopt forward-looking reforms to ensure that California’s tax policy meets the evolving needs of our people and our economy. Years of prudent budgeting, voter-approved tax increases and our improving economy have given California unprecedented financial stability. This is fertile ground for bold actions that both modernize and ensure the fairness of our tax laws. Working families and small businesses still recovering from the Great Recession deserve a more transparent and efficient tax system.”
