The Buckeye Institute Strongly Applauds Ohio AG Yost for Fighting Federal “Tax Mandate”

Mar 17, 2021

Columbus, OH – Robert Alt, president and chief executive officer of The Buckeye Institute, issued the following statement upon Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s lawsuit to stop enforcement of the “Tax Mandate” included in the American Rescue Plan, which would forbid Ohio’s elected officials from determining tax policy in the Buckeye State.

“Bravo to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost for defending the basic principle that it is up to Ohio to set its own tax policy, thank-you-very-much. Washington’s condescending attempt to force bad tax policy on the states for years to come is blatantly unconstitutional, and Ohio is fortunate to have an Attorney General willing to lead the charge on this important question of federalism.”
