[img_assist|nid=26681|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=227|height=300]AUSTIN Americans for Prosperity-Texas, the premier advocate of economic freedom with more than 110,000 members in the Lone Star State, today applauds Texas Senate Candidate Jim Herblin (District 30) for signing AFPs Defending the American Dream Pledge.
Government should be fiscally disciplined and not pose an unnecessary burden on the taxpayers, especially in this economic environment, said AFP-Texas Director Peggy Venable. We encourage all of Texas elected officials and candidates for elected office to sign this critical pledge.
Herblin joins more than 70 elected officials and candidates across Texas on the federal, state and local levels who are pledging to support limiting spending growth to population growth plus inflation; creating Emergency and Budget Stabilization funds with excess tax revenue, and returning any tax dollars above the necessary amount back to the taxpayers through tax cuts; and requiring voter or legislative supermajority approval for tax and spending increases.

Thanks to the leadership of these individuals who have pledged to protect the taxpayers interests, Texas has become the beacon of fiscal sanity in the United States, said Venable. Good policies promote prosperity, as we have seen in our state. Our initiative, www.LoneStarStrong.com, highlights the policies and elected officials who have followed the guidelines of this pledge, and this has led to great prosperity in Texas.

Americans for Prosperity does not support or oppose candidates for public office. All elected officials and candidates are encouraged to sign the pledge and go on the record in support of these taxpayer protections.
