Jefferson City, MO – Yesterday, Big News Network covered Americans for Prosperity – Missouri’s Yellow Pages test at the Capitol to coincide with the Path to Prosperity document that is a comprehensive approach at legislation in 9 key policy areas designed to create an economic environment in MO for long term sustainable job growth.
The article highlights AFP – Missouri’s first of nine Legislative areas – Prosperity and Freedom by delivering 200 yellow pages to State Representatives and State Senators at the Missouri Capitol. AFP-Missouri wants lawmakers to review state government priorities by applying the Yellow Pages Test: “If it’s in the Yellow Pages government should consider not doing it.”
The Yellow Pages test helps government concentrate on delivering “inherently governmental” services — those that should be performed by public employees, like public safety and judicial systems — while contracting with businesses and nonprofit organizations for other services.
AFP – Missouri activists delivered nearly 200 yellow pages to State Representatives and State Senators at the MO Capitol. AFP-MO wants lawmakers to review state government priorities by applying the Yellow Pages Test: “If it’s in the Yellow Pages government should consider not doing it.”
“The purpose of the Yellow Pages test is for our elected officials to look to the private sector and non-for-profit organizations to provide more effective, cost efficient, and better services to the taxpayers of Missouri. This will help reduce the size of government, create jobs, and provide tax relief to Missouri families.” Patrick Werner, State Director, Americans for Prosperity – Missouri.
