July 07, 2011J

Signs No Climate Tax Pledge

PALM BEACH GARDENS—The Florida chapter of the free market grassroots group Americans for Prosperity (AFP-FL) today applauded U.S. Senate candidate Ronald Rushing for signing the group’s “No Climate Tax Pledge.” Rushing joins more than 525 bipartisan lawmakers and candidates on the federal, state and local levels pledging to “oppose legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.”

“The one thing elected officials should agree on is that global warming shouldn’t be used as an excuse to hike taxes on citizens and businesses,” said AFP-FL Policy Director Abigail MacIver. “We encourage all of Florida’s elected officials and candidates for elected office to sign the pledge.”
