Americans for Prosperity-Missouri thanks Senators Rob Schaaf, Scott Rupp, Tom Dempsey and Representatives Eric Burlison, Dr. Keith Frederick, Donna Lichtenegger, Tim Jones for their leadership in successfully passing SB 464, which blocks the state from establishing state-based health insurance exchanges without a legislative act, an initiative petition, or a referendum. The law specifically blocks the Governor’s office from creating an exchange via executive order.

“This is an important victory for Missouri against Obama’s health care takeover,” explained Patrick Werner, State Director of Americans for Prosperity – Missouri. “On behalf of our 34,000 Missouri activists, AFP-Missouri applauds these citizen legislators for his efforts to promote limited government, free markets, and individual liberty by passing this law.”
