AFP-AZ Announces Opposition to Crony Corporation Commission Proposal

Jun 11, 2019 by AFP

PHOENIX, AZ—Americans for Prosperity-Arizona (AFP-AZ) today announced its opposition to a proposal from the Arizona Corporation Commission that would enact a corporate welfare scheme, forcing captive ratepayers to underwrite utility investments in electric vehicle charging infrastructure that would only benefit a small fraction of consumers. In conjunction with releasing a statement, AFP-AZ issued a key vote alert to Commissioners serving on the Corporation Commission.

AFP-AZ State Director Stephen Shadegg issued the following statement:

“Arizona’s Corporation Commissioners should resoundingly reject this blatant example of corporate welfare. Arizona ratepayers should not be left paying the bill for infrastructure and charging stations that only few will be able to use. Instead of picking winners and losers, we urge our Commissioners to remove barriers to competition and innovation in this nascent market.”
