On Dec. 6 at 11 am, the city council will be having a hearing on a bill first created way back in January: the "Taxation Without Representation Federal Tax Pay-Out Message Board Installation Act of 2007" (Bill 17-0028), co-introduced by council members Barry, Brown, and Schwartz. This bill would "provide for the installation of LED Message Boards on the outside front wall of [t]he John A. Wilson Building and the new baseball stadium to display the dollar amount of federal taxes paid by District of Columbia residents." At both locations, the bill says, the sign "shall be large enough for the public to easily read, and should be designed and placed in a location so as not to deter from the architectural beauty of the exterior." I can't wait to hear the debate over this one, though perhaps the lengthy delay in getting it before the committee of the whole is telling.
This appears to be a different Taxation Without Representation sign than the one that local politics commentator Mark Plotkin is agitating for; he wants one similar to the license-plate-design sign that is hung at RFK placed on the scoreboard at the new ballpark. In his Nov. 9 and Nov. 27 online chats at washingtonpost.com, he discusses the somewhat-less-than-enthusiastic response he received from Mayor Fenty, DC Sports and Entertainment Commission chairman Matthew Cutts, and Nationals president Stan Kasten. Apparently the team has final approval on all signage.
