Arizona’s House of Representatives seeks to vote on the Apple and Google taxes
The Arizona House of Representatives will vote on legislation that would prevent Apple from forcing developers to use its in-app payment platform
If you recall, when we first wrote about the North Dakota legislation, we told you that Apple’s chief privacy engineer, Erik Neuenschwander, said that the bill “threatens to destroy iPhone as you know it.” The same comment would basically apply to what the state of Arizona is attempting to do. Which Neuenschwander states would “undermine the privacy, security, safety, and performance that’s built into iPhone by design. Simply put, we work hard to keep bad apps out of the App Store; (the bill) could require us to let them in.” The Arizona House Committee has already passed the bill and the amendment. Now it goes before the full Arizona House for a vote.
