Indiana's primary election is tomorrow, Tuesday June 2, 2020. With the primary right around the corner, Americans for Tax Reform recently released the list of Taxpayer Protection Pledge signers for state legislative offices.

Unfortunately, we have to remind Indianans which of these active pledge signers voted to approve a significant gas tax hike in early 2017, HB 1002. It is also an opportunity to highlight those pledge signers who upheld their promise to taxpayers on a tough vote, with pressure from fellow Republicans to vote for a tax hike. 

Below is the list of pledge signers with an asterisk next to those who voted for this tax increase:
