Alaska and a small utility district in Texas. Who would have thought they could have anything in
common. But they do: representation without taxation.
Next month, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear an appeal by NAMUDNO (Northwest
Austin Municipal Utility District No. 1), in a case that I discussed in a blog entry
a year ago.
The utility district is trying to have Section 5 of the Voting Rights
Act declared unconstitutional, not the sort of thing most utility district citizens want to spend their hard-earned money on.
