On Monday, Senators Ron Wyden from Oregon and Olympia Snowe from Maine introduced new legislation, the Cell Tax Fairness Act, that seeks to impose a five-year halt on new or increased taxes on wireless goods and services. According to the CTIA, 15% of the average wireless consumer's bill goes to taxes and fees. The CTIA itself had proposed a five-year ban on new wireless taxes several months ago.
