JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Americans for Prosperity Missouri (AFP-MO) and a coalition of organizations today called on Governor Parson to suspend Certificate-of-need laws hampering the state’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

State Director Jeremy Cady issued the following statement:

“Our coalition is thankful for the initial steps Governor Parson has taken to address the seriousness of this situation and we call on him to continue to help Missourians by suspending Certificate of Need processes,” said State Director Jeremy Cady. “These burdensome restrictions limit the number of health care facilities in our state and serve as red tape for our system. It’s time to ensure Missourians have access to the health care they need.”

Americans for Prosperity released a letter to the Governor officially requesting the suspension cosigned by a coalition comprised of United for Missouri, Missouri Century Foundation, Mackinac Center for Public Policy, and Exemplar Public Strategies.
