This legislation would provide a statewide mechanism for the <br />collection of existing state and local revenues as it relates to prepaid wireless services. Most <br />recently, prepaid wireless has achieved great popularity in the market and AB 1717 would <br />establish a uniform, statewide collection mechanism for prepaid wireless services based on the <br />point of sale (for retail sales) and "known address" for internet 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 />`v' Jan Marx <br />Mayor <br />Cc: City Council <br />Assembly Member Henry Perea, fax 916-319-2131 <br />Senator Bill Monning, fax 916-445-8081 <br />Jennifer Whiting, League of California Cities, jwhiting@cacities.org <br />David Mullinax, League of California Cities, dmullinax@cacities.org <br />Don Maynor, maynorl @comcast.net <br />Fran Mancia, fran.mancia@muniservices.com <br />
