Erik Jensen, David L. Brennan Professor in the School of Law, recently published a number of articles, including “The More Things Change: Much Talk of Reform, but are Real Results Likely?” in Journal of Taxation of Investments; “Sin Taxes: Taxes Aren’t Always the Answer” on American Government ABC-CLIO; and “Hands Off My Purse! Why Money Bills Originate in the House” in the Heritage Foundation’s First Principles Series. Additionally, two articles are forthcoming: “The Sale of State Tax Credits: A Tax Court Decision Isn’t a Temple of Doom” in Journal of Taxation of Investments and “A Comment on Commas” in the Green Bag.
