David Nagle was quoted in the article, "Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Scratches 'Millionaires Tax' From The Ballot," which was published by WAMC Northeast Report and broadcast on WAMC Northeast Public Radio.

In the article, Dave noted that the court found the question unfair to voters who might support raising taxes on the rich, but not earmarking the additional revenue for specific purposes. He states, "one of the interesting things about the opinion is that it is written in a way that would make it difficult for proponents to tie a specific use of funds to a comparable kind of tax. The opinion does suggest a tax provision, like the one proposed here, will also stand on its own and not be related to any public good that might be funded."
