AFP-Florida Praises Call for Added Scrutiny of Tax Increases**

11.07.17 01:59 PM

Legislature should move quickly to give voters a voice in deciding outcome of tax increases Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) is hailing the proposal by Representative Tom Leek, PCB WMC 18-01, that would require a supermajority vote in order for government to impose, authorize, or raise taxes or fees. Under this proposal, both chambers of the Florida legislature, the House and the Senate, would each be required to meet the two-thirds majority vote in order for tax and fee increases to be considered. AFP-FL state director, Chris Hudson released the following statement: “What better way to add to Florida’s reputation as a great place to live and work than to give citizens peace of mind that a supermajority is needed in order to raise taxes. This would make life miserable for Florida lawmakers looking to stick taxpayers with the bill for their inability to control spending.* You want to raise taxes?* Good luck with that. We commend Representative Leek for introducing this*constitutional amendment. We commend Governor Scott and Speaker Corcoran for speaking in favor of this proposal, and hope they work with their colleagues to get this to Florida voters as soon as possible.”
