Mini-Programs
A discussion of state taxation will lead a list of six mini-
programs scheduled for Saturday, February 1. A new mini-
program for spouses on tax reform will also be introduced.
Everyone is welcome to attend. In place of a more tra-
ditional plenary session, two additional mini-programs are
planned for Sunday morning. These are scheduled to end
by 10:30 a.m. to permit members desiring to return home
on Sunday more flexibility in making travel plans. These
mini-programs are described later in this Newsletter.
Amid the mini-programs, participants may expect a de-
bate on section 60501, possibly another on state and local
taxes, and a panel on tax reform if the Houses passes the
bill.
Social Activities
Participants will be able to choose their type of enter-
tainment. Informal activities range from playing tennis at
the Hotel Del Coronado courts to gazing at Shamu, the
killer whale at Sea World and touring Tijuana and LaJolla.
