February 18, 2011 J

Hundreds of AFP Activists Traveling to WI
State Capitol Saturday to Rally Support
-AFP President Tim Phillips to Speak from Wisconsin State Capitol-

Americans for Prosperity today launched www.StandwithWalker.com where citizen activists from across the country can show support for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s common sense reform to end union collective bargaining and tackle the state’s nearly $4 billion deficit.

In addition to signing a petition of support for Governor Walker, Americans for Prosperity activists will travel in buses from across the region to participate in a coalition rally being held at the state capitol in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, February 19 starting at noon.

Participating groups include American Majority, Americans for Prosperity, and several local Wisconsin tea party groups. AFP President Tim Phillips will be a featured speaker.

Additionally, AFP plans to run radio ads across the state urging senators to support Governor Walker’s plan.

“The bottom line is that collective bargaining is being used to force extravagant pension and health benefits that are crippling state budgets like Wisconsin’s,” said AFP President Tim Phillips.

“If we’re going to get spending in control, then all states should be adopting this type of sensible budget reform. Citizens across the country should be alarmed that these common sense reforms are causing union bosses to disrupt a state government. I call on Americans to show their support for Governor Walker’s sound fiscal responsibility when it comes to handling his state’s budget deficit.” continued Phillips.
To arrange an interview with AFP President Tim Phillips, please call 202-309-1129.
