AFP-KY Relaunches Efforts Against Raising the Gas Tax

Dec 6, 2018 by AFP

FRANKFORT, KY—Americans for Prosperity-Kentucky (AFP-KY) today announced the launch of its digital video campaign as part of its grassroots effort in opposition to raising the Commonwealth’s gas tax. While House Bill 609 did not come to a vote in this year’s legislative session, AFP-KY remains at-the-ready to defeat any similar proposal in next year’s legislative session. AFP’s latest effort will use new video resources to get across the message that increasing the gas tax is wrong for Kentucky.

The digital ad campaign has statewide reach and highlights the need for Frankfort to curtail excessive spending and implement fundamental budget reforms.

AFP-KY State Director Andrew McNeill issued the following statement:

“Special interest groups are doing everything they can to convince lawmakers to raise taxes on Kentucky’s families while protecting their own corporate welfare perks. Prioritizing spending and eliminating special tax treatments for favored industries is where we must start the conversation of how to invest in Kentucky’s infrastructure. Our activists and partners will be actively engaged in the 2019 General Assembly session to keep our legislature’s focus on protecting Kentuckians’ pocketbooks from the tax and spend agenda of these special interests.”
