On April 14th, The Washington Business Journal referenced D.C. Policy Center Fellow David Bishop’s piece on technology fees on business licenses and permits in an article titled “D.C. has raised millions through an additional fee on businesses. A think tank wants to know where the money has gone.”

“District businesses have paid more than $6.5 million in technology fees since fiscal 2011 to improve the online business license process, but a local think tank and the D.C. government are at odds over where the money is going and how it’s being spent.”
