Americans for Prosperity Launches Ads to Encourage House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff to Bring Taxpayer Protection Act to a Vote

Sep 15, 2021 by AFP

HARRISBURG, Pa. – Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) today launched new digital and radio ads as part of the grassroots group’s first push to begin to take steps to bring the Taxpayer Protection Act to the floor this fall. The Taxpayer Protection Act, also known as HB 71, will amend the state constitution to cap government spending. The cap will be determined by averaging the sum of the previous three years’ inflation plus state population growth rates.”

AFP-PA State Director Ashley Klingensmith issued the following statement:

“It’s time for us to put up the necessary guardrails on spending in Harrisburg after years of wasteful government spending and tax increases at the expense of taxpayers. The Taxpayer Protection Act will protect taxpayers, foster job creation, and speed up economic recovery as families continue to rebound from the pandemic. We urge citizens across the Commonwealth to encourage House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff and urge him to defend hardworking Pennsylvanians and hold the vote on the Taxpayer Protection Act.”
