This is a link to our "Need to Know" publication on the "Death Tax." Last year Ohio eliminated their death tax. Indiana and other states are looking to do the same. http://www.americansforprosperityfoundation.com/files/Death_Tax.pdf
With all the talk about "Right to Work" we thought we would share with you our "Need to Know" paper written on the issue last August.
Hopefully, it provides you with a little more insight on the Right to Work issue.

Thank you to the Randolph County Tea Party for allowing us to speak to their group last evening! We discussed AFP's ongoing effort to highlight out-of-control government spending as part of our cut spending now campaign. We also briefly discussed the upcoming legislative session and the issue of Right to Work.
The Randolph County Tea Party is an impressive grassroots organization. This is a group actively engaged in their community. They have organized issue education campaigns, phone banks and get-out-the-vote efforts to just name a few.
Over the coming weeks and months, Americans for Prosperity-Indiana will be working with groups such as the Randolph County Tea Party to educate the public and improve our local and state governments.
If you would like for us to visit your organization please email us at infoIN@afphq.org.
Despite overwhelming public opposition, including from over 12,000 AFP activists who wrote to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) using this website, the NLRB plans to move ahead anyways with its ambush union elections rule.
Congress can stop this job-killing rule change in its tracks by passing the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, H.R. 3094.
Take action here.
Last weekend I joined your fellow Hoosiers at the Americans for Prosperity Foundations 5th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit. This was a peaceful assembly of nearly 2,500 grassroots activists from across the country. Our summit is meant to energize and educate our activists on how to be more effective in their communities as grassroots leaders.
Although there were rumors of a looming protest, the summit was coming along fine until Friday evenings dinner tribute to Ronald Reagan. During the dinner, nearly 500 Occupy DC protestors showed up outside. They surrounded the convention center and began to walk around the building, looking for an unguarded door. The police moved with them to keep anyone from entering who did not have a credential.
