Spokeman-Review: Ward Signs ‘No Climate Tax Pledge’
February 3, 2010
First District Congress candidate Vaughn Ward has joined four Idaho elected officials in signing a pledge to “oppose legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.”
In a news release Tuesday, the free market group Americans for Prosperity, said Ward had signed on. An early signatory was state Treasurer Ron Crane, who signed last year when he was considering running for same job Ward wants, the GOP nomination to face Democrat Walt Minnick. Crane declined to challenge Minnick last spring.
The other Idaho signatories are state Sen. Monty Pearce, R-New Plymouth, state Reps. Lenore Barrett, R-Challis, and Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
