Help Us Oppose TCI
Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance is fighting to keep our tax dollars low and our state government more accountable. This is why we oppose the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) gasoline tax. TCI is attempting to bypass the democratic process by pushing through a tax increase without forcing the legislature to take a vote.
Eliminating legislative procedure is a very slippery slope for Massachusetts. Whether you support this California style gas tax hike or not, it’s wrong for Governor Baker to pursue a tax increase without a legislative vote. Lawmakers are being completely excluded from the process, despite this being the exact task they were elected to carry out.
Your local lawmaker may be excluded from the process, but that doesn’t mean you need to be. TCI bureaucrats are soliciting feedback for their scheme. Anyone from the public can submit their opinions.
We need taxpayers to step up and let their loudest voices be heard. You’ve been forewarned, now you are forearmed. It’s time to be heard.
Follow these steps:
- Submit your opinion to the TCI bureaucrats by clicking here.
- Complete MassFiscal’s Call to Action to contact your lawmakers by clicking here.
- Post these two links to your social media pages to spread the message to other like-minded taxpayers.
- Now forward this page to your co-workers, friends, and family so they can do the same.
If you would like to learn more about this TCI scheme, read our op-ed in the Lowell Sun, or NFIB’s op-ed in the Lawrence Tribune, Howie Carr's column, or even the recent column in Forbes.

And remember! TCI = TAX.
The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance mailed a letter to every state lawmaker and elected municipal official in Massachusetts regarding the proposed Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) gasoline tax. The letter, which may be found by clicking here, is intended to educate local leaders on the realities of the tax scheme.Read more
