ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in Missouri helping unveil a new nonprofit group focusing on job creation through low-tax state policies. The former presidential candidate was in suburban St. Louis Friday to promote the new nonprofit Americans for Economic Freedom. He says the tax-exempt group will focus on job creation by pushing low-tax state policies rather than a "Washington culture (that) is fundamentally broken." The board of Americans for Economic Freedom will also include St. Louis beer baron August Busch III, economist Art Laffer and former House Speaker and former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Perry is considering whether to run for president in 2016 after an unsuccessful 2012 effort.
