Republicans Holding the Line on MNLARS

The disastrous government project known as MNLARS met a roadblock yesterday in the Republican controlled House. Despite wasting $93 Million of taxpayer money on a failed IT system used for processing the states motor licenses, Governor Dayton and his newly appointed MNIT chief are requesting $43 Million more. This isn't the first time we've seen politicians try solving problems by throwing more money at it.

MNIT chief Johanna Clyborne requested $10 Million immediately to "keep computer programmers on board." But Republicans in the Transportation Committee had other plans in mind and voted for Rep Paul Torkelson's bill HF 3147 which appropriates $10 Million to MNIT in exchange for an equal amount of cuts to the "general fund executive agency appropriations." The bill also requires a detailed project schedule and measurable performance benchmarks (added as amendments in committee).

Our position at Action 4 Liberty is that there should be no additional spending this session after lawmakers grew state biennium spending by a massive $4.5 Billion last year. We encourage legislators to oppose Governor Dayton's call for spending additional taxpayer money, especially to fix a problem that he is responsible for creating.

WOODBURY, MN. - Action 4 Liberty announces the launch of its new website,

A4L's vision is to make Minnesota a Top 10 State for Business by changing the course in St. Paul and expanding business freedom, health freedom and education freedom.

MNscorecard.comwill be launched to monitor the Minnesota legislature on a daily basis so voters have a reliable source to see how their elected officials are voting.

The website will pro-actively evaluate bills as they come up in the legislature. The site will use the following criteria to evaluate scoring: does the bill expand individual freedom and reduce government control?

"Our goal is to make this website a pro-active tool to inform legislators of conservative positions before votes are taken and also an accountability tool to inform voters when legislators are voting against your liberties," said Action 4 Liberty President Jake Duesenberg.

Action 4 Liberty is dedicated to the protection of free enterprise and constitutional principles and advocates for a limited role of government.
