Center Reunites with Coalition that Successfully Defeated the TCI Gas Tax for Summit

Encroaching government overreach is a paramount concern to many New Englanders. The Rhode Island Center for Freedom & Prosperity will be attending a regional summit hosted by the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, along with other state based organizations on Tuesday in order to discuss approaches for educating the public and holding government accountable.

Freedom from government overreach has been a rallying cry for many citizens, now more than ever, and the coalition strives to protect their members from unnecessary intrusions into their daily lives. The group has already successfully combated TCI Gas Tax and hopes to set an example of collaborative effort in service of preserving rights going forward.

In attendance will be Paul Craney of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, Dan Winslow of the New England Legal Foundation, Greg Moore of Americans for Prosperity in New Hampshire, Drew Cline of the Josiah Bartlett Center, Nick Murray of Maine Heritage Policy, Rob Roper and Meg Hanson of the Ethan Allen Institute in Vermont, Mike Stenhouse of Rhode Island Center for Freedom and Prosperity, and Bryce Chinault of the Yankee Institute in Connecticut.

“After successfully defeating the TCI Gas Tax, which, like the covid vaccine and mask mandates, was a destructive prescription for an over-hyped problem, our regional coalition is set to take on the next agenda-driven, government-contrived, and media-advanced false narrative,” said Mike Stenhouse, CEO of the Rhode Island Center for Freedom & Prosperity. “In Rhode Island, expanding natural gas pipeline capacity, and decoupling our state from RGGI and from California’s coslty and harsh CARB regulations are our Center’s number one energy-related priorities.”

The summit provides an opportunity for these powerful groups to come together and exchange strategies that will help them continue to fight any ill-advised legislation that undermines freedom and liberty.
