(WASHINGTON) – Generation Opportunity today announced its endorsement of the Safe, Accountable, Fair, and Effective (SAFE) Justice Act, which was recently introduced by Congressmen Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.). The overarching intent of this criminal justice reform bill is to decrease the federal prison population. Generation Opportunity President Andrew Clark issued the following statement:
Washington, DC – (6/25/2015) – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in the case of King v. Burwell. In a 6-3 decision, the Court concluded the law was written with the intent of providing subsidies to individuals who purchased plans through the federal exchange.
Washington, DC – (6/16/15) – On the heels of the failed Marketplace Fairness Act, Rep. Chaffetz (D-UT) has introduced the Remote Transactions Parity Act (RTPA) which would erode limits on state tax-collection authority, damaging and discouraging interstate commerce. In a thinly-veiled attempt to hurt online businesses in the name of helping brick-and-mortar stores, the RTPA removes a physical presence standard that protects a state’s citizens from out-of-state collectors. In doing so, this legislation creates a slippery slope for state governments to tax businesses beyond their borders, hurting businesses on- and off-line.
