AFP-KY Launches Digital Campaign Against Gas Tax

Sep 14, 2018 by AFP

FRANKFORT, K.Y. – Americans for Prosperity-Kentucky (AFP-KY) today announced the launch of its digital campaign against raising the state gas tax. While the proposal of House Bill 609 did not come to a vote in this year’s legislative session, it is expected to be back next year, serving as a band-aid for egregious overspending in a system that desperately needs fundamental reform.

The digital ad campaign has statewide reach and highlights the need for Frankfort to curtail excessive spending and prioritize where current Road Fund dollars are spent.

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

“Proposing a new gas tax hike will hit drivers right where it hurts the most: their pocket-books. It’s time for legislators in Frankfort address necessary reforms to curtail their excessive spending and start to prioritize projects to fix our roads, bridges, and infrastructure in a fiscally responsible way.”

Alongside unleashing its over 26,000 grassroots activists mobilizing to encourage their elected officials to reject any gas tax hike during this year’s session, Americans for Prosperity-Kentucky released a statement urging lawmakers to reject the proposed hike:
