Americans for Prosperity-Colorado Pushes Back Against Proposed Gas Fee Increase During Committee Hearing

May 10, 2021 by AFP

DENVER – Americans for Prosperity-Colorado today weighted in after the proposed gas fee was debated in committee. The grassroots group showed up to the hearing with a group of activists where some provided testimony. Those that testified highlighted the consequences of the bill including the disproportionate impact on low-income communities. 

AFP-CO State Director Jesse Mallory issued the following statement: 

“Struggling families in low-income communities will only continue to struggle if this proposal passes. The timing could not be worse as families are recovering their losses from the pandemic. Voters have repeatedly stressed that they do not want this. Yet lawmakers are continuing to push this bill through and are ignoring their obligation to voters. That’s why we’re taking this to the ballot in 2022 to ensure that Coloradans have their say.”

Background:

Polling conducted by AFP-CO in February 2021 identified that constituents across the aisle are not supportive of the tax increase.
