To protect Californians from future attempts to tax text messages, Senator Brian Jones released the latest video in his popular “Are You Kidding Me?” series which highlights Assemblymember Kevin Kiley’s AB 162 that Jones has co-authored. This bill would prohibit the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) from collecting any revenue on communications classified as an information service by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) like text messages, voicemail, and email.
