Gov. James Gilmore spoke out against Internet taxes in a speech at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 15. “Internet taxes, and the burdensome system that would be required to collect them, would hurt both Internet businesses and Internet customers,” he said.

Also in his address, Gilmore had praise for President Alan Merten. “During your tenure,” he said, “George Mason has grown into one of Virginia’s leading regional universities and one of the nation’s pre-eminent technology universities.”
