BATON ROUGE, LA—Americans for Prosperity-Louisiana (AFP-LA) today issued a statement in response to HCR70, a resolution in support of bailing out state and local governments before Congress.
AFP-LA Interim State Director James Lee issued the following statement:
“From parish to parish, Louisiana families across our great state are faced with increasingly difficult financial circumstances at the hands of this unprecedented pandemic. But Congress bailing out state and local governments that have mismanaged their finances for decades will certainly not help those most in need. We urge our delegation in Washington to reject these bailouts and instead focus their efforts on smarter spending and other ways to responsibly respond to the economic and public health challenges stemming from COVID-19.”

Following a letter to Congress, the grassroots group recently announced that it would mobilize activists against massive state bailouts by running a significant national campaign that includes digital ads directing activists to a petition for them to sign.
AFP believes the path to economic recovery — across all of the United States and at the federal level– is to enact reforms the lay the foundation for an economic environment that empowers everyone to improve their lives and the lives of others by:
