FairTax Fast Forum planned at 6 p.m. today in Kennewick

The Tri-Cities Tea Party and Fair Tax.org are co-sponsoring a FairTax Fast Forum tonight in Kennewick.

The forum will provide information about a proposal to demolish the increasingly complex system of federal taxes and loopholes in favor of a 23 percent national retail sales tax.

The bill proposing the overhaul of the federal tax system has never made it out of Congressional committees.

The forum is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kennewick branch of the Mid-Columbia Libraries, 1620 S. Union St.
