John Locke Foundation to give legislative update May 20

May 14, 2014

A 2014 legislative update will be provided from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 20, at the USDA Agricultural Extension Agency. The speakers will be by Becki Gray, vice president of outreach, and Kory Swanson, executive vice president for the John Locke Foundation. The John Locke Foundation is a “public policy” resource for state legislators that provide policy evaluations on a regular basis. As such, they stand in a unique position to bring Haywood County citizens up to speed on issues facing our state.

Light supper fare will be served. All are invited for fellowship and to meet some of the candidates running for office in Haywood County.

Attend a dynamic presentation focused on Obamacare and Medicaid at the N.C. state level, what happens next? Regulatory and tax reform updates will explain how increasing individual freedom allows local governments to foster the prosperity of its citizens.

New job growth data show 2013 was strongest year for N.C. job growth since the recession — what is working and what is not.

Education reforms have been implemented — discuss how they are working and what has been done.

Protecting the constitutional property rights of N.C. citizens is essential — citizens’ rights are being threatened and what needs to be done to protect them?

In general, the presentation will discuss actions that will be taken in Raleigh during the N.C. legislative short session in 2014. And what have been the results of the 2013 Legislative Session?

This event is sponsored by Main Stream Conservatives United who are "taxed enough already".
