Jefferson City, MO– Americans for Prosperity – Missouri released its 2017 Economic Freedom Scorecard today as part of the group’s effort to inform citizens about the performance of their elected representatives and senators on important tax, spending, and regulatory legislation.
AFP-Missouri scored seven Senate votes and ten House votes on a wide variety of legislation. Important bills scored include SB 19, Right-to-Work, HB 1194, the Missouri Minimum Wage bill, and HB 230, a bill that would untangle regulations for those seeking a hair braiding license.
There were 20 “Champions of Freedom,” those scoring 90 percent or above, in the House and only one in the Senate: Sen. Bill Eigel.
Visit MissouriScorecard.com to view the interactive scorecard. Residents can search for a specific legislator by inputting their name, district number, or entering their own address to find their legislator.
AFP-Missouri also produced a one-page summary of the legislative session, providing a general analysis on how both chambers voted on key policy issues.
“We applaud the Champions of Freedom who led the way on some of the year’s biggest victories, which include making Missouri the 28th right-to-work state,” said AFP-Missouri State Director Jeremy Cady. “We plan to promote this scorecard throughout the state to inform Missourians on how their legislators voted. We commend our Champions of Freedom and encourage them to continue to lead the spread of pro-growth, free market policy that will benefit Missouri families.”
