NC Americans for Prosperity Promotes State Legislative Agenda for 2011-12 Session by Dallas Woodhouse
I wanted to share with you the AFP-NC legislative agenda for 2011. What primarily guides this agenda is a belief in the free-market and that the individual should have the maximum freedom possible to pursue the American Dream.
In keeping with this agenda, AFP-NC will be producing a 2011 Legislative Report Card. AFP-NC grassroots members will identify key House and Senate votes that have a significant impact on promoting free-market competition, lowering taxes, restraining state spending, and protecting property rights.
AFP-NC 2011 Legislative Agenda:
• Pass a budget with ZERO tax increases
• Allow temporary sales and income taxes to sunset as planned
• Repeal ¼-cent sales and land transfer tax
• Require any referendum to take place on an even- year November General Election
• Increase the number of public charter schools and other school choice options
available to parents
• Promote the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) that would limit government
• Promote an amendment requiring a supermajority to raise taxes
• Eliminate corporate welfare (incentives) and adjust the corporate rate from 2% to 3%
• Protect private property
• Support a Constitutional Amendment to stop eminent domain abuse
• Stop forced municipal annexation
• Stop excessive property tax increases that threatens homes & businesses
