A North Star for the Old North State

Americans for Prosperity North Carolina Releases a Vision for the Future of North Carolina

Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina’s (AFP-NC) legislative agenda outlines a clear roadmap to break down barriers to opportunity that inhibit North Carolinians from improving their lives and reaching their full potential.

AFP-NC will focus its legislative priorities on: ensuring every family in North Carolina can provide their child with learning opportunities best fit for their individual needs; that North Carolinians have access to affordable and high-quality health care; AFP-NC will advocate for policies that protect personal property rights while opposing anti-competitive policies; advocate for a society of openness that is protected through our First Amendment rights; and continue to fight for a justice system in North Carolina that protects people and preserves public safety while ensuring equal justice for all.

2023 Legislative Priorities

Foundational Education Reform: Support an individualized approach that respects and cultivates each student’s unique potential and that meets each student where they are. We support legislation that funds students rather than systems.

Economic Progress: Reform state taxes so they are fair, low, and predictable while making state government spending live within its means.

Health Care: Continue to cut needless red tape to make health care more accessible and affordable.

Freedom of Speech: Foster openness, respect, and toleration. Protect the diversity of views and promote courageous collaboration across differences.

Criminal Justice Reform: Take meaningful steps towards ending the cycle of poverty and recidivism that our current justice system perpetuates with reforms that are smart on crime and soft on taxpayers.

Foundational Education Reform

Support an individualized approach that respects and cultivates each student’s unique potential and that meets each student where they are. We support legislation that funds students over systems.

Americans for Prosperity believes the purpose of education is to help students discover, develop, and apply their unique abilities. Each and every student must have access to an education that unleashes their extraordinary potential – regardless of their family income or ZIP code. We support policies that help us move away from a one-size-fits-all approach that dominates our current education system and closer to a system of personalized learning. 

Economic Progress

Reform state taxes so they are fair, low, and predictable while making state government spending live within its means.

Americans for Prosperity strives to create an economy that works for all – empowering people to earn success and realize their potential. The core beneficial role for state government is to protect the foundational rights necessary for people to control their own destiny. State budgets should prioritize residents’ ability to take risks and be entrepreneurial to earn their success. When government exceeds this positive role, it harms the economy, diminishing opportunities for citizens.

Health Care

Continue to cut needless red tape to make health care more accessible and affordable.

Americans for Prosperity empowers people to earn success, contribute to their communities, and live meaningful lives. This requires a health care system that helps more people access better care at a lower cost – where health care providers compete to offer the best health care products and services at the best prices to meet the needs of patients. Unfortunately, many state and federal laws act as barriers to access and innovation, and some are calling for proposals that would further exacerbate the problems caused by these barriers, such as implementing a single payer system or expanding Medicaid.  Instead, we should work to remove bureaucratic barriers and reimagine our approach to health care.

Freedom of Speech

Advance policies that contribute to an open society while rejecting policies that contribute to divisiveness and toxic polarization that keeps people from working together to solve problems.

Americans for Prosperity believes when people with different beliefs, backgrounds, and cultures come together to harness their creativity, they accomplish extraordinary things. For these reasons (and many more) we believe protecting people’s equal right to free speech and ensuring culture embraces an openness to free expression are essential.

Criminal Justice Reform

Take meaningful steps towards ending the cycle of poverty and recidivism that our current justice system perpetuates with reforms that are smart on crime and soft on taxpayers.

An effective criminal justice system protects people and preserves public safety, respects human dignity, provides opportunity for people with criminal records, and ensures equal justice for all under the law.  Americans for Prosperity supports smart-on-crime, soft-on-taxpayer reforms that make our communities safer and improve lives.
