Text messages might be next to face California tax, reports say
Jim Wunderman, president of the Bay Area Council business group, told the paper. “This is how conversations take place in this day and age, and it’s almost like saying there should be a tax on the conversations we have.”

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



California state regulators have been working on a plan to charge mobile phone users a text messaging fee intended to fund programs that make phone service accessible to the low-income residents, reports said Tuesday.

The California Public Utilities Commission is scheduled to vote on the proposal next month, but critics have already come out against the scheme, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

“It’s a dumb idea,” Jim Wunderman, president of the Bay Area Council business group, told the paper. “This is how conversations take place in this day and age, and it’s almost like saying there should be a tax on the conversations we have.”

While the amount consumers would be expected to pay remained unclear, some business groups are saying the new charges could cost wireless users more than $44 million a year, FOX11 Los Angeles reported.

Charges may also be applied retroactively to messages sent in the past five years, which has raised questions concerning the proposal’s legality, Rufus Jeffress, vice president of the Bay Area Council, told the San Francisco Bay Area's  KNTV-TV . The “alarming precedent” could chalk up to a bill of more than $220 million for consumers, the Mercury News reported.

The wireless industry argues that the fees would put carriers at a disadvantage since competing messaging services like Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp would not be charged the new fees, FOX11 reported.

Those against the proposal said that wireless customers already pay into the state’s Public Purpose Programs, which they call “healthy and well-funded” with nearly $1 billion in its budget, the Mercury News reported. But state regulators disagree, saying the budget has increased more than $300 million over six years, KNTV reported.

Residents lamented the potential tax, calling it “dumb” and “unfair.”

“To have them charge us something else is just dumb,” a Bay Area resident told KNTV. “I think it’s very unfair, especially for the people that can barely pay for their cell phone plan already.”

This article is moot.  It can't be done as texting is a form of communication the same as a letter or a conversation.  If a letter or a conversation can not be taxed, texting can not either.  It has been shot down already.

No way this would have any support even if it was a possibility. And if it did pass? The people that passed it would be out of office before they could say, "oh shit". 

Also...not a liberal/socialist utopia, it's actually called capitalism. 

Trump is a socialist, so you may want to back off the whole, "socialism is bad" horse crap. No? One of the core beliefs of socialism is government controlling private business. Who tried to bail out carrier? Trump. Who told NFL owners they should fire players that don't stand for the National Anthem? Trump. Who imposed tariffs on imported goods for many companies including Harley Davidson, which caused those business's to lose hundreds of millions of dollars? Trump. 

You're welcome.

And I choose not to live in a state where illegal aliens are completely free to roam without any fear of being deported, and where ordinary citizens can be killed by illegal aliens.

Health exchanges mean next to nothing. Texas uses the federal exchange--you know, the one set up by Democrats, so if you find it lacking, your beef is with them.

Your surplus will be eaten up quickly. Maybe they will apply that surplus to their approximately $1 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities.

Or who knows? Maybe they'll just waste it on the train? The one waaaay over budget and it isn't even near completion.

It's not "free speech" since you pay for the service it isn't free, and even if they did proceed (which they already dropped the effort) your ability to speak would not be stifled, just more expensive.

Studiusbagus, I was presenting what I would believe would be the argument against the text message tax.  Text messages are already taxed as part of the utility taxes already in place.  This is a tax on top of that utility tax that focuses on just text messages, so looking that way upon it, the argument does present itself as being a tax on free speech.

Nice try. But still you tried to say it was a violation of free speech in which there was no basis. You paid to speak and nobody was infringing on that right. 

Yes, the phone charges include utility taxes as well as 911 taxes. They wanted to tax the texts which is seperate...but the FCC slapped them around.

I'm not in favor of what they tried but trying to drag " free speech" in there didn't apply.

This is nothing but a big giant "SQUIRELL!!!!" coming from Faux Snooze. There is simply ZERO chance of this happening in California or anywhere else for that matter. This entire story is based on a commission who hasn't even made the proposal yet but, like any commission, votes first on what to even hear proposals for. That's what this is, a vote on whether to hear a proposal that is going to get laughed out of the building.

Thing is dismayed , they COULD have gotten away with it if it was worded properly.

from my understanding part of the reason this came about was because people are ditching their landlines which have the built in improvement fees for service , the same is not true for cellular ( to include texting) service. remember this is my understanding.

so to recoup the funds generated by landlines  being lost, they discussed how they could have done it to cellular services and what they offer. thing is they called it a TAX. if they had called it an area coverage service fee, since the government controls and owns the rights to the radio waves( which cellular use) and they lease out by lic, they could have gotten away with it to an extent.

People might not have liked it and complained , but under that scenario, it was doable from even a state government perspective. Just increase the area service fee.

I agree the words used allowed Fox to turn this into a scary headline getting their conservative Republican readers to shake their heads as they feel their view of crazy liberals and California are reinforced and validated by such misrepresented "fake" news.

There simply is no chance of a "per text" service fee or "tax" since it would then give the many other different methods of communication a financial edge over texting and texting would just disappear being replaced by something similar but isn't taxed.

I think it's far more likely the proposal will be something more like what you mention, an increase of area service fees based on the total amount of text traffic, so if an area has 10 million texts a day being transmitted that area will have a substantially higher service fee than an area that fields just 1 million texts a day, but the idea that individuals will be assessed a per text tax is pure fiction used by Fox News to troll stupid people, aka their viewers and readers.

Who said that? I'd never heard of people wanting to ban straws until it was already a proposal in some cities. And most big cities have always essentially acted as "sanctuary cities" because of cost, not any political stance. The cities chose to not spend money paying their officers to work two jobs, keeping streets safe and enforcing federal immigration laws which is ICE's job. It was only given a name when some conservatives began demanding those cities do their job for them without pay. Should the police check the financial status and investigate whether every drunk driver they pick up has paid their federal income taxes? Do they run a tax audit on them for the federal government to make sure they're not breaking any other laws? Of course not, that would be ridiculous, but you don't call those cities who don't have their officers doing that "Tax shelter" cities, do you?

Sactuary cities PROHIBIT cops from doing their jobs

"The term sanctuary has no uniform legal meaning, but in general it refers to integrationist policies—that is, policies that serve to integrate immigrants regardless of their status. So called “sanctuary” laws might include prohibition of use of county funds to initiate an inquiry or enforcement based solely on immigration status , or the refusal to hold ICE detainees (in county jails, for instance, until ICE arrives), or the refusal to let ICE agents into public spaces without a judicial warrant . So, it can take many forms. But it is not a protective blanket that prevents ICE from doing its work . They can do their job, but it’s a matter of how much assistance they get from localities."

"Major cities like San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Baltimore and Boston are sanctuary cities. Interestingly, New York had sanctuary policies even under former mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani , now an adviser to Trump’s campaign.

ICE can issue an “immigration detainer,” a request to be notified when a “criminal alien” (a noncitizen convicted of a crime) is being released from a state or local law enforcement agency. This is so ICE can take custody of such people when they’re released and figure out whether they’re subject to deportation."

Reluctance among local and state agencies grew after a DHS program failed to prioritize deportation of convicted immigrants, and state and local governments saw it as a drain on their resources . With many local and state agencies strapped for cash, they declined to cooperate in what is ultimately a federal responsibility .

Local and state governments can decide not to participate in federal immigration enforcement — which ultimately is a federal responsibility."

So the facts simply do not support your hypothesis. There simply is NO difference between a cop checking an arrestees federal income tax status to make sure they're "legal" and then referring the tax cheats to the IRS and cops checking the immigration status of an arrestee and referring them to ICE instead of simply focusing on whatever law might have been broken that got them arrested. And if they're acquitted of the crime they were arrested for, the cops have no reason to keep holding them for ICE.

We have many cities now where the State law differs from federal law when it comes to marijuana. Should all local cops in Colorado or California detain pot smokers to turn them over to the DEA? So that means we are also marijuana sanctuary cities.
