California considering texting tax


The California Public Utilities Commission is considering a texting tax.

According to the commission, the money generated from the tax would help more people have access to cell phones in the state.

Individuals that are part of California’s Lifeline program, a program that provides discounted landline and wireless services to eligible households, would not be taxed under the proposal.

According to Fox News, the commission is expected to vote on the proposal next month.
