This legislation would <br />provide a statewide mechanism for the collection of existing state and local revenues as it relates <br />to prepaid wireless services. Most recently, prepaid wireless has achieved great popularity in the <br />market and AB 1717 would establish a uniform, statewide collection mechanism for prepaid <br />wireless services based on the point of sale (for retail sales) and "known address" for internet <br />sales. <br />The City of San Luis Obispo supports this legislation as a necessary tool for collecting <br />and protecting our local tax revenues, and in assuring tax equity. We respectfully request your <br />"AYE," vote on AB 1717 as it is a step in finding a solution to collecting much needed existing <br />local revenues from prepaid wireless services. <br />Sincerely, <br />an Marx <br />Mayor <br />Cc: City Council <br />Assembly Member Henry Perea, fax 916-319-2131 <br />Assembly Member Katcho Achadjian, fax 916-319-2135 <br />Jennifer Whiting, League of California Cities <br />David Mullinax, League of California Cities <br />Don Maynor <br />Fran Mancia <br />
