    4         Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act (TIPRA)

   10  interest and are charged with maximizing the value of every tax
   11  dollar expended, and
   12         WHEREAS, the unfunded mandate in Section 511 of Public Law
   13  No. 109-222 (26 U.S.C. 3402(t)) will result in additional
   14  expenditures of human and budgetary capital to achieve agency
   15  compliance, and
   16         WHEREAS, an increase in operating costs would result in
   17  significant reductions of support for critical services to the
   18  citizens of the State of Florida, and

   20  511 of Public Law No. 109-222 (26 U.S.C. 3402(t)) will result in
   21  the diluted value of the taxpayer dollar, and
   22         WHEREAS, the requirement of a 3 percent withholding not
   23  only places a substantial burden on state and local governments,
   24  it is detrimental to the small businesses that are the backbone
   25  of Florida’s economy, NOW, THEREFORE,
   27  Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   29         That the Congress of the United States is urged to repeal
   30  the unfunded mandate contained in Section 511 of Public Law No.
   31  109-222 (26 U.S.C. 3402(t)) by enacting H.R. 275 or S. 292, or
   32  similar legislation, which is pending before 111th Congress.
