|The Honorable Jane Doe
United States Senate
Washington D.C. 20510
Dear Senator Doe:
I am writing to express my concern about the recently proposed tax increase
on ink products (Senate Bill 2469) that I read about in my local newspaper
last Sunday, September 2, 2001.
As I understand the bill, it would raise the tax on ink sold in the
United States by 50% and I want you, as my Senator to know that I am totally
opposed to this bill.
In my business I make extensive use of ink and the new tax would cost
me nearly $100,000 per year, which could put me out of business within
a short time.
Knowing that printing is a very important industry in our state, I am
asking you to vote “NO” when this bill comes before the Senate for a vote.
I firmly believe that a “NO” vote by you would be in the best interest
of your constituents.
Would you please write to me at the address below and indicate your
position, as well as the reason why you agree, or disagree, with my recommended
Thanks you very much for your consideration.
