YOUR Sales Tax Exemption Bill (AB-5) on broadcast equipment, supplies, electricity, and vehicles licensed for highway-use (used to transmit or receive signals from a satellite) was signed into law by Governor Walker on April 23! As you know – the bill passed both houses of the Wisconsin Legislature – receiving overwhelming bi-partisan support. The Vote in the Senate was 30-3 and the Vote in the Assembly was 92-1 Stay tuned for more details on the logistics (it will go into effect on July 1, 2014 – the first day of the 3rd month after the bill signing).

YOU DID A FABULOUS JOB – Teamwork and Grassroots efforts all the way!!
