House committee will hear bill to create new economic bureaucracy

Tomorrow afternoon, the House Labor, Veterans’, and Military Affairs Committee will hear HB 237, the Workforce and Economic Prosperity Act. Contrary to its title, this bill would greatly hinder the advancement of prosperity. By creating a new bureaucracy to direct and manage the economy in favor of the clean energy sector, HB 237 would harm our economy’s growth and recovery from the Covid-19 downturn.

The committee meeting starts at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon, and you can watch the webcast here or join the Zoom meeting for public comment here.
