Progressive leaders in state governments are taking a number of steps to build an economy that works for everyone, and they have ambitious plans for additional reforms. They are striving to create jobs, boost incomes, cut costs for middle-class necessities, lower the risks of falling behind, and boost opportunity and fair treatment for all. With federal gridlock making congressional action more difficult, the progressive agenda for these laboratories of democracy is taking on ever greater importance.
Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a speech by Gov. Martin O’Malley, about what states can do to increase mobility, strengthen the middle class, and get the country back on track to broadly shared prosperity. The event will feature a report “States at Work: Progressive State Policies to Rebuild the Middle Class,” which includes more than a hundred recommendations for how states can blaze the trail towards a more equitable and prosperous future.
