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. Verizon Wireless spoke in favor of wireless tax reform, and the issue appears to have the backing of the industry. Similar legislation, however, failed to pass congress in 2007.
