Employee Freedom Making It’s Way in the House

Missouri is in the doldrums regarding economic performance.  Our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) ranked 48th in the last decade with only Michigan and Ohio behind us.  They are doing everything they can to pass us up!

Opponents of necessary reforms such as tax reform and employee freedom point out that Missouri ranks very low on most measures of taxation.  They claim for example that if taxes were really important, that Missouri should be booming.  They ignore the fact that one element in and of itself does not make for economic success.

Opponents are starting to admit that there is no silver bullet solution.  It’s probably too optimistic to think that   they will actually put together the fact that you need tax reform and employee freedom.  But you know what they say, even a blind hog finds an acorn once and awhile!

Wednesday, the House committee on Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Committee will hear House Bill 77  dealing with Employee Freedom.  There will be a committee substitute dropped to remove the orginail proposal to send the measure to a vote.
