Americans for Prosperity Applauds State Senate Candidate Jeff Frederick

Signs No Climate Tax Pledge

Richmond, Virginia (July 19, 2011) —The Virginia chapter of the grassroots free market organization Americans for Prosperity (AFP-VA) today applauded State Senate candidate Jeff Frederick (36th District) for signing the group’s “No Climate Tax Pledge.”  Frederick joins more than 540 bipartisan lawmakers and candidates on the federal, state and local levels pledging to “oppose legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.”

“The one thing elected officials should all be able to agree on is that global warming shouldn’t be used as an excuse to hike taxes on citizens and businesses,” said AFP-VA State Director Trixie Averill.  “We encourage all of Virginia’s elected officials and candidates for elected office to sign the pledge.”

Virginia pledge signers include: U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor; U.S. Representatives Scott Rigell, Robert Hurt, and Morgan Griffith; Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling; Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli; U.S. Senate candidates George Allen and Jamie Radtke ; as well numerous state senators and delegates.

“Using the guise of climate change to transfer dollars from hard-working citizens to bureaucratic big government is unacceptable,” said Averill. “Regardless of their stance on global warming, this should be common ground for all of our elected officials at all levels of government.”
