Bury the Death Tax

February 16, 2012 J

Indiana is one of just a handful of states that imposes an inheritance tax. This tax is also known as the “Death Tax” because it occurs at the point of one’s death. Yes, believe it or not, after paying taxes all of one’s life, Indiana’s state government taxes your earnings once again as you leave this world! This is a tax that your loved ones pay with what earnings you have been able to leave them.

Americans for Prosperity – Indiana believes this tax is unnecessary and unjust.

Tell your legislators that you support permanent death tax repeal.

AFP – Indiana Legislative Update

February 07, 2012 J

The first half of Indiana’s legislative session was anything but business a usual. As we head into the second half of the legislative session, we thought we would take this opportunity to give you a quick update of what has happened so far and what we hope will happen in the remainder of the 2012 session.

HB 1001, Employee’s Right to Work: With successful votes in both the House and Senate along with Governor Daniels’ signature, Indiana became the 23rd state and the first in a decade to adopt a Right to Work law. AFP-Indiana was very supportive of this effort to provide freedom in the workplace. With your help we were able to send over a thousand emails and postcards to the General Assembly. In addition, we targeted specific state legislators with direct mail urging constituents to contact them in support of Right to Work.

Indiana Embraces Worker Freedom

Right to Work to Bring Jobs and Workplace Freedom

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Today, Indiana’s state Senate stood up for Hoosier workers by passing legislation to make Indiana the 23rd Right to Work state. The bill has already passed the Indiana House and now heads to Governor Mitch Daniels, who will sign it later today.

“Today is a great day for Indiana’s workers and everyone who agrees that no one should be forced to join a union as a condition of employment,” says Chase Downham, State Director of AFP-IN. “By recognizing worker freedom, Indiana makes itself a beacon for jobs in the Midwest."

Let’s Finish the Job and Make Indiana a Right to Work State!

January 31, 2012 J,

Indiana is very close to becoming the 23rd Right to Work state, but our effort to bring jobs and workplace freedom to Indiana is not over! The Indiana State Senate still must vote on the House version of Right to Work (House Bill 1001) before this important legislation can move forward to the Governor.

Union bosses from across the country are doing everything they can to stop this move to bring freedom to the workplace. They have even tried to intimidate state senators to voting their way by protesting at their homes in front of their families. We need to make sure that state senators who have supported Right to Work continue to do so.
