During this legislative session, I will be filing legislation, researching bills and then debating on the House floor whether a bill will benefit or will hurt Missourians. My hope, despite our political differences, is Representatives from all regions of Missouri, can work together in a bi-partisan fashion to create legislation that will result in a stable job growth for our state.
I also get the opportunity to talk or meet with constituents from my district and listen to their concerns and passions regarding state issues. I do appreciate all the calls, emails and visits from those who have had a need to contact my office. This week I had the pleasure of meeting with the Community Colleges Organization and visiting with Dr. Steven Kurtz. I will strive to keep you informed on a weekly basis as to what is happening here at the Missouri State Capitol.
Legislation that I have filed
HB 1290Specifies that all state properties that currently have a flagpole shall fly the POW/MIA flag
HB 1291 Revises the definition of counties exempt from certain requirements of the county special road and bridge tax
HB 1292Prohibits text messaging within a school zone
HB 1926 Modifies provisions relating to public contracts
Please feel free to contact my office anytime you wish to voice your concerns or ideas. I appreciate the opportunity to serve you in Jefferson City.
