From Wendell Cox at Joel Kotkin’s New Geography blog comes the news relayed from the Tax Foundation , that the Internal Revenue Service has reversed itself and will not discontinue publishing its Migration Flow data. Last Wednesday a Washington Examiner editorial  took the IRS to task for this, since the data was a unique source of information for, among other things, how many people are leaving high-tax states for low-tax states. Jim Pettit of Change Maryland also chimed in on National Review’s website and the Daily Caller ran a news story on the change.

It’s good to know that the IRS changed its mind—and that Washington Examiner editorials get results!
