Today, two of Missouri’s largest conservative organizations came out strong against State Sen. Kurt Schaefer’s bill in the Missouri state legislature that would eliminate consumer choice for the people of the Show Me State. Americans for Prosperity and United for Missouri jointly authored a letter condemning the SB 785 which they say would “[undermine] individual and economic liberty and [create] an artificial dependence on government programs,” contrary to the core beliefs of the organizations and their respective members.
“It is not the place of the Missouri Legislature to put one industry out of business at the behest of another industry,” the letter states. “Big insurance companies are trying to deprive Missourians of their economic freedom in order to promote their own special interests.”
We at ARC agree. Sen. Schaefer’s bill would over-regulate legal funding providers to the point that legal funding would likely cease to be offered to people in Missouri. Less consumer choice is never the best option. These groups believe the same.
Americans for Prosperity and United for Missouri have a massive grassroots activist base of more than 146,000 Missouri voters. They are dedicated to protecting the rights of their members, and the rights of the people of the state of Missouri.
ARC is looks forward to working with the Missouri Legislature to craft a bill that is both pro-consumer and pro-business—something that everyone can get behind.
