AFP-Nebraska to Launch Statewide Grassroots Tour to Support Gov. Heineman’s Tax Reform Plan

*Americans for Prosperity Applauds Senators Ashford and McCoy for Introducing Tax Reform Legislation*

LINCOLN, NE – Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska, an advocacy group for limited government and lower taxes with over 40,000 members statewide, announced a grassroots tour in seven cities across the state to build support for elimination of the state income tax.

“We applaud Senators Beau McCoy and Brad Ashford for their bold approach to tax reform.  With the support of these legislative leaders Nebraska families and small businesses stand a real chance to see the tax burden on their income eliminated,” said state director Brad Stevens.

Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska will host grassroots events in Omaha, Lincoln, Norfolk, Columbus, Grand Island, Kearney and North Platte this month to build statewide support for Gov. Heineman’s tax reform plan.

“Eliminating the state income tax means greater take home pay for working class Nebraskans.  AFP will be hosting events across the state educating Nebraskans on the importance of the governor’s reforms and what eliminating the income tax means for family’s bottom lines.  We are confident once Nebraskans learn more about this proposal, the Legislature will feel the grassroots pressure to eliminate the income tax,” continued Stevens.
