AFP-TN Reacts to Nashville Taxpayer Protection Act Ruling

Jun 23, 2021 by AFP

NASHVILLE, TN – Following Davidson County Chancellor Russell Perkins’ ruling that cancelled the July 27 election for the Nashville Taxpayer Protection Act, Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee (AFP-TN) State Director Tori Venable issued the following statement:

“This ruling once again silences Nashville voters and taxpayers who continue to be saddled with harmful tax increases. Nashvillians are tired of Mayor Cooper and Metro’s spending addiction that put the city in jeopardy of a state takeover.

“The court’s decision only perpetuates the fiscal mismanagement we’ve seen and places an even greater need on the state legislature to strengthen our Truth in Taxation law that will insert some sense of fiscal responsibility into the city’s finances and allow voters to reject corporate welfare and massive tax hikes. We will continue to advocate for taxpayers throughout the state and work to bring structural reforms that reins in Nashville’s outrageous spending.”
