Shadegg Signs No Climate Tax Pledge

Arizona Congressman John Shadegg, (R) CD 3, has signed the Americans for Prosperity, "No Climate Tax Pledge." The pledge is worded, "I, (name), pledge to the taxpayers of the state of (home state) and to the American people that I will oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in federal government revenue."

Americans for Prosperity Arizona State Director Tom Jenny said, "The one thing elected officials should be able to agree on is that global warming shouldn't be used as an excuse to hike taxes on citizens and businesses."

Jenny urged all of Arizona's elected officials to sign the pledge saying that, "Using the guise of climate change to transfer dollars from hard-working citizens to bureaucratic big government is unacceptable," and that "regardless of their stance on global warming, this should be common ground for all our elected officials at all levels of government."
