Ending Beacon Hill's 'Tax-First' Mentality

GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker, Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei, and members of the Senate Republican Caucus joined Barbara Anderson of Citizens for Limited Taxation for a press conference on the State House steps Monday morning to call for an end to the "tax-first" mentality on Beacon Hill. The press conference took place just hours before the House rejected a proposal to allow communities to circumvent Proposition 2 1/2 with a backdoor tax increase targeting the state's homeowners.
