The Missouri chapter of the conservative Americans For Prosperity (AFP)is aiming at making Missouri a right-to-work state and rolling back union membership as it top 2013 goals.
The group announced its legislative agenda Tuesday.
“We intend to educate Missourians about these and other issues and hold our legislature accountable for how their votes affect economic freedom and prosperity,” said Patrick Werner, the head of the Missouri AFP.
Originally the Republican leaders in the general Assembly appeared to be cool to the idea of making right-to-work a top legislative priority for the session that started earlier this month. A number to GOP lawmakers, however, are pushing bills to launch a debate over the issue.
Missouri AFP’s list also shows the group intention to battle Governor Jay Nixon’s plan to expand Medicaid in Missouri.
Missouri AFP also wants to push for personal property tax cuts.
