Americans for Tax Reform recognizes the Indiana incumbents and candidates who have taken the Taxpayer Protection Pledge ahead of the May 8 primary election. The Pledge is a written commitment to hardworking Indiana taxpayers and to the American people to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

“By signing The Pledge, these candidates and incumbents demonstrate that they will safeguard Indiana taxpayers from higher taxes,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform. “Pledge signers understand that government should be reformed in a way that it spends and takes less taxpayer dollars, and will oppose tax increases that prolong failures of the past.”
