Gas Tax Opposition Letter Released

Conservative organizations across the state of Tennessee have released a joint letter in opposition to the Governor’s plan to raise taxes on fuel consumption. Their letter states that they (collectively) “do not believe that ANY tax increase or new taxes are needed while Tennessee has been the beneficiary of BILLIONS of dollars in new recurring revenue and surpluses in recent years, including an anticipated nearly TWO BILLION DOLLARS in surplus and recurring revenue in the upcoming fiscal year.”

They also point out in the letter that “when Tennessee taxpayers have been OVERCHARGED by BILLIONS of dollars, it is irresponsible to even consider asking hardworking Tennesseans to pay higher taxes.”

Some of the groups supporting the letter include  Americans for Prosperity, the Nashville Tea Party, the Tennessee Republican Assembly, America First Tennessee, Red Nation Rising TN.
