ATR’s Mattie Duppler debates the Transparent Airfares Act on Fox Business

Americans for Tax Reform‘s Director of Budget and Regulatory Policy Mattie Duppler was a guest on the Willis Report Friday to discuss why the Transparent Airfares Act is necessary for more transparent taxation. Watch below as Mattie explains how repealing the DOT rule that forces airlines to include taxes in the base price of an airline ticket makes it easier for consumers to see what they are paying for.
