Americans for Tax Reform congratulates Governor-elect Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.) on winning the general election. Gianforte is a signer of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a written commitment to Montana taxpayers that he will oppose and veto any and all efforts to raise state taxes.

This is not the first time the governor-elect has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Prior to being elected the next Governor of Montana, Gianforte signed and kept his “No New Taxes” pledge throughout his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives and worked with President Trump to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs act.

Gianforte will continue his legacy of protecting taxpayers in the governor’s mansion. On the campaign trail, he not only vowed to protect taxpayers from higher taxes, but also came out with a plan to get Montana’s economy booming again—the “Montana Comeback Plan”— in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Having a taxpayer ally in the executive branch is as important as ever next year. When lawmakers convene next legislative session to tackle a number of issues brought on by the Coronavirus, Montana voters can rest easy knowing that Gianforte will hold the line against tax increases.

Americans for Tax Reform offers the Pledge to all candidates for state and federal office. In addition to Governor-elect Greg Gianforte, 12 other sitting governors are signers of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.

New candidates sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge regularly. For the most up-to-date information on these races or any other, please visit the ATR Pledge Database.
