I.    The State Ad Tax Fight After Maryland (2:00 – 2:30 PM)
The Maryland legislature recently overrode Governor Larry Hogan’s veto of the first-in-the-nation tax on digital advertising. Other states are readying similar bills, including New York. What’s next in this fight? Two experts on tax policy will discuss.

III.    A Quick State Privacy Roundup (3:00 – 3:15 PM)
The states continue going their own way on privacy – Virginia recently passed a privacy law that is on the way to the governor and more are following suit.  Until Congress acts in this area, the industry’s focus will remain on the states.  ANA’s Chris Oswald will give a quick update on the action.
