AFP-MO Applauds Sen. Brown for Protecting Workers’ Paycheck

March 12, 2013

Jefferson City, MO – Americans for Prosperity – Missouri, the state’s leading advocate for fiscal responsibility and prosperity, applauds Senator Dan Brown’s leadership on the passage of Senate Bill 29, known as Paycheck Protection, in the Missouri Senate.
The bill simply states that public employee unions must seek annual consent in order to automatically deduct fees from members’ paychecks.

With the passage of Senate Bill 29, Missouri workers are one step closer to having the freedom to decide whether or not their earnings are put toward political activity to which they may object.

“Paycheck Protection is a good first step in protecting the right of Missouri workers,” said Missouri state director Patrick Werner. “We applaud Senator Brown for recognizing that workers should be able to choose how their hard-earned money is spent.”
