Chris Hogan Discussing the Defend my Dividend campaign

Lauren Blosse and I joined more than 30 representatives of the American Gas Association (AGA) and the Edison Electric Institute member companies and state utility shareholder organizations at a meeting to re-launch the Defend My Dividend (DMD) campaign. The July 15 event was held in Chicago and provided an important forum for key industry advocates to coordinate the DMD message of fair and reasonable tax rates on dividend income.

In light of the President Obama’s budget and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus’ supporting legislation, the campaign recently retooled its Web site ( and refined its messaging to commend the president and chairman who have both made statements in support of maintaining and making permanent the 15 percent dividend tax rate for a vast majority of Americans and capping the rate at 20 percent for other taxpayers.

In this video clip, I have a chance to discuss the DMD campaign and other key issues with Mandy Clark, Executive Director of Utility Shareholders of Florida.
