Testimony: Qualified High Technology Companies Tax Incentives

May 21, 2019

Children's Law Center attorney Anne Cunningham recently testified in support of the Qualified High Technology Companies Tax Incentives amendment introduced by councilmember Nadeau. We support rolling back the QHTC tax incentives for two key reasons. First, fiscal responsibility demands our government urgently terminate superfluous and failed programmatic expenditures. Our second reason for supporting a rollback of the QHTC expenditure program is the fact that a slew of critical education and human services programs will benefit from the recouped tax revenue. As members of the Birth-to-Three Policy Alliance and the Coordinating Council on School Mental Health, we strongly support investments that implement the Birth-to-Three for All DC Act and expand school-based mental health supports.
