As the House and Senate hammer out a tax plan, Americans for Prosperity is taking to the radio airwaves to try to influence the negotiations.
The tea party group's state chapter announced Thursday that it is putting about $100,000 behind a new statewide radio ad campaign (Listen Here.) to encourage residents to support the Senate version. The minute-long radio spot touts the flat 5.25 percent personal income tax in the Senate bill compared to the 5.9 percent in the House plan. It uses a sports metaphor to warn that "some leaders are about to fumble" the tax ball with "only a few seconds left in the game."
Dallas Woodhouse, the state director, said it's part of AFP's pledge to spend $500,000 to push tax reform.
