Tea Party Groups Form Online Petition Demanding Jindal Veto Of Tax Hikes

Louisiana’s governor has made it a point that he will not support any new taxes or rate increases in this legislative session, though fees and tuition rates and so forth have been something of a different story. This petition doesn’t cover those, so it’s a really friendly bit of pressure from the Tea Party groups involved.

The petition specifically says “I Support Governor Jindal to Veto Any Legislation that is a New Tax or Tax Increase.”

As a citizen of the State of Louisiana, I applaud Governor Bobby Jindal’s strong anti-tax stance for the 2011 Legislative Session.

In the remaining days of the 2011 Regular Legislative Session, I call upon Governor Jindal to remain strong and veto all bills that constitute a new tax or tax increase.  It is imperative to me that no new or increased taxes are passed by the Louisiana Legislature.

Sign on to the petition here.
