California proposes a plan to tax text messages

Quote
San Francisco (CNN Business)California regulators want to tax text messages to increase funds for programs that bring connectivity to underserved residents.
 
A new surcharge proposed by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) wouldn't be a per-text tax, but a monthly fee based on a cellular bill that includes any fees for text-message services. Most carriers offer a flat fee option for texting, and already charge a similar fee for other services included in the bill — such as phone calls. The exact structure of the charge would vary from carrier to carrier.
