Martin Methodist College is hosting Conversations on three of the four Tennessee State Constitutional Amendments that will be in the November ballot. The Conversations will be between two experts on the subject of each Amendment, one who supports the Amendment and one who opposes it. There will be time set aside for questions from the audience.
The objective is to have a civil and informative discourse which will provide a clear understanding of the issues surrounding the Amendment.
Amendment Three would prohibit the legislature from passing a state income tax. Tax policy touches on a number of important issues such as fairness (who pays, what burden does it place on them?), economic development (does the policy encourage or discourage jobs and economic growth?), and government funding stability.
Our presenters will be Dr. Gregory Brown, Professor of Business at Martin Methodist College (against the amendment) and Ms. Lindsay Boyd, Director of Policy at Beacon Center of Tennessee, a public policy and advocacy organization based in Nashville TN.
Seating is limited to 125, with preference given to students at Martin Methodist College. The remaining seats will be given to members of the public based on RSVPs. If you would like to come, please RSVP here, and we will notify you if we cannot seat you. Otherwise, assume that you got your RSVP in early enough to obtain a seat.
This event is co-sponsored by the Martin Methodist College Pre-Law Society, the Martin Methodist College Democrats, and the Giles County Democratic Party.
