Americans for Prosperity – Mississippi (AFP-MS) released their 2020 scorecard, which tracks lawmakers’ votes on key issues raised during the legislative session. The grassroots group scored 30 bills to assemble a comprehensive overview of how lawmakers voted on critical legislation that removed barriers to Mississippians’ opportunities.
Key pieces of legislation included the “Mississippi Learn to Earn Act,” that adds skilled trade education courses into the curriculum, legislation that authorized the Occupational Licensing Review Commission to review existing professional regulations and to cut red tape for small businesses.

Randy Boyd, Rep. Kevin Horan, Rep. Joel Bomgar, Rep. Dana Criswell, Rep. Chris Brown and Rep. Steven Hopkins.
