House Dems Short on Votes for a Gas Tax Increase?

January 24, 2012 J


Governor O’Malley has not released his transportation funding proposal yet House of Delegates Majority Leader Kumar Barve says he does not have the votes right for a tax hike.

You can bet that a lot of arm twisting and horsetrading is going on to pass a crushing gas tax hike to the middle class.

Citizens need to counteract backroom deals and political pressure by contacting their Delegate and State Senator encouraging them to oppose increasing the gas tax.

Every day Americans for Prosperity members need be leaders by encouraging their neighbors, family members, co-workers, and even the people next to in the checkout line to contact their elected officials.

Taking these 2 steps will help keep “no” votes stay “no” votes on increasing the gas tax.
