State Video Tax Fairness Act of 2007 - Prohibits any state from imposing a direct or indirect tax that results in different charges being imposed on substantially equivalent multichannel video programming services based on the means by which those services are delivered, including Internet protocol (or any successor protocol), direct broadcast satellite delivery, and cable television services.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
