WASHINGTON, DC– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) applauded the passage today of H.R. 3086,the bipartisanPermanent Internet Tax Freedom Act. This legislation, which McMorris Rodgers co-sponsors, permanently ensures Americans can continue to access the Internet tax free.

This smart legislation will continue to enable Eastern Washington men, women, and children to communicate, learn, and conduct business in the 21st century.
