April 11, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement thanking State Rep. Paul Curtman (R-Mo.) for leading the effort in the Missouri House to urge the Missouri Congressional delegation to adopt U.S. Rep. Ken Buck’s (R-Colo.) Article I supplemental:
“Representative Paul Curtman gets it, and is a fighter for limited government at the state and federal level. He recognizes the importance of reestablishing Congress’ Article I authority to return the power in our government to the people. Rep. Curtman’s courageous decision to lead the charge in Jefferson City urging passage of Congressional legislation that dramatically asserts Congress’ will on more than fifty areas where the executive branch has overreached its authority is an example for state legislators across the nation.
“We appreciate Representative Curtman’s leadership on limiting government both inside of Missouri and beyond, and urge the Missouri House to advance his resolution, H.R. 1256, to urge passage of the Article I supplemental in the Congress. The Congressional delegation from Missouri should follow Curtman’s example and listen to Missourians whose express desire is to reign in the federal government’s fiscal and regulatory abuses, and return to the Constitution’s separation of powers.”
