Congressional Hearing on IRS Abuse and EPA Overreach: Mesa, Aug. 22.

On August 22, from 3:30 – 7:30 pm, please attend a Congressional Hearing on IRS Abuse and EPA Overreach. The hearing will be held at the Mesa Arts Center (Virginia G. Piper Repertory Theater) at 1 East Main Street.  Here is a link to the event flyer.  

The public is encouraged to attend and speak.

Paul Gosar (AZ-04) stated, "It is important, now more than ever, that we hold this intrusive government accountable. Please join us and let us know how you feel about the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative organizations and the EPA’s unlawful actions."  

Paul Gosar (AZ-04) will be joined by Congressmen Matt Salmon (AZ-05), David Schweikert (AZ-06) and Trent Franks (AZ-08).  The purpose is to take testimony from constituents in regards to problems or concerns they have with the IRS or EPA.  Witnesses will also offer testimony on the impact a closure of the Navajo Generating Station would have on Arizona.  These issues not only impact Arizonans, but also affect Americans across the country.  

Attorney General Tom Horne and State Representative Brenda Barton will offer testimony. Representatives from Tea Party groups, industry associations, and businesses will testify as well.

According to Rep. Paul Gosar (CD4), "Salt River Project, operator of Navajo Generating Station, recently announced it would shut down 33 percent of the plant with an agreement that will likely shut the entire plant by 2044. The dismantling of the electric plant is due to the Obama Environmental Protection Agency’s unnatural fixation with destroying the coal industry. President Barack Obama stated publicly that he will see to it that coal plants are taxed or regulated out of existence. The president is now using the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to attack carbon fuels."
