Partnership focuses on key reforms to expand access to critical services and empower entrepreneurs
Arlington, Va. — Americans for Prosperity and the Mackinac Center for Public Policy announced a joint partnership to assist federal officials and state governors, attorneys general and lawmakers in efforts to pass critical policies benefiting American workers as the nation continues to combat the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
National and state policy responses must not only consider the very real threat to our public health, but also the livelihoods of the American workforce. Together, our organizations are providing a road map for policymakers that can immediately empower workers and unleash innovation, anchored by the following three issues:
Empowering American Health Care System
Supporting American Job Providers
Protecting American Workers
“AFP is calling on our leaders to break down barriers for Americans serving their communities during this trying time. Licensing reform is one way we can help unleash innovation and increase access to vital health care and economic opportunity,” says Erica Jedynak, director of employment initiatives for Americans for Prosperity.
“The Mackinac Center for Public Policy and the Workers for Opportunity initiative continues to be a source of meaningful solutions that have lasting, positive impacts on the livelihood of families and communities nationwide,” says Lindsay Killen, vice president for strategic outreach at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. “Working together with allies and policymakers, we can respond with timely antidotes that mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 crisis for patients, providers, workers and entrepreneurs across the country.”
