Jan 16, 2018 by AFP

Denver, CO – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) – Colorado, the leading grassroots organization in Colorado, just released its 2018 Road to Freedom policy agenda outlining the major policy areas the group will advocate. The ambitious Road to Freedom agenda urges properly funding our transportation needs with existing revenues and without tax increases, reforms to Colorado’s burdensome occupational licensing requirements, increasing and encouraging responsible energy development, expanding educational freedom that empowers families and children, and supporting the taxpayer bill of rights (TABOR).

“We made great strides in 2017 defending TABOR and advancing policies that promote economic freedom,” said AFP-Colorado State Director Jesse Mallory. “Legislators must show fiscal discipline and prioritize our transportation needs over pet projects and extraneous spending. Attempting to push through a tax increase after such a large increase in the state budget would be insincere,” continued Mallory. “For the sake of Coloradans seeking to enter jobs that require licensing credentials, I urge the General Assembly to revamp our occupational licensing practices, keep energy affordable for working families, expand educational freedom, and protect TABOR from further attacks.”

Throughout the legislative session, AFP-Colorado will educate residents and lean on it’s expansive grassroots network to hold state legislators accountable and build off the successes of 2017.
