On March 3, the Alliance signed onto a letter with a number of other associations opposing Kentucky H.B. 8, which would impose new taxes on digital and print media ads. The letter explains the harms of advertising taxes, especially on small businesses and consumers, while also pointing out the past failures of such proposals. The Alliance acknowledges the importance of advertising revenue for publishers as a means to providing quality news to their communities and will continue to oppose legislation that negatively impacts that ability.
