House Speaker Mike Hubbard, R-Auburn, and Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh, R-Anniston, testified in a federal tax trial that GOP members of both houses had taken 2010 campaign pledges of "no new taxes." They both said that in the current economic climate there would be little appetite to raise taxes.
