     assistance to state and local governments be extended or modified and how will it
     affect the tax relationship?
  • Should the federal government encourage more state and local spending through
    special bond programs?
  • Should changes to the deduction for state and local taxes paid be part of tax
  • Should Congress pave the way for the streamlined sales and use tax agreement?
