Show Me The Missouri "Special" Session

As residents of the "Show Me" state, we're all feeling frustrated by the inability of the legislature to "show us" job creation.

The Special Session was called with the understanding that the House and Senate Republicans had reached an agreement on the Aerotropolis (or "China Hub" as it is also called) legislation which is designed to reinvent Lambert airport as an international trading hub. This was proposed to be done through the use of tax credits for building warehouses and moving freight into and out of the U.S. Of course, the ultimate goal is job creation. Any bill of this magnitude that I support a will have to tie tax credits into actual job creation.

The Republicans in each legislative chamber have enough members to pass a jobs bill, but have differed by as much as $300 million on tax credit amounts in addition to other aspects of the complicated omnibus bill. Democrats were among those pushing hard to remove the provision that took away tax credits from low income seniors and people with disabilities who rent their homes. This provision was removed in the Senate version.

House members are tentatively scheduled to go back into session late next week.

My Friend, Representative Jason Kander to run for Secretary of State

Today, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan announced that she will not seek reelection. I applaud and appreciate her work and tireless dedication to our state.

Representative Jason Kander began serving in the Missouri House at the same time I did. He is a skilled legislator, a successful attorney and someone you will want to meet.

In the legislature, he lead the effort to reinstate campaign contribution limits and positively reform our ethics laws.

Jason describes himself as the son of a police officer and juvenile probation officer. His wife, Diana is a small business owner. He grew up with an extended family that included foster brothers. Jason is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

He is someone I will be proud to support as our Secretary of State.

May I Join You?

Are you having a subdivision meeting, picnic, scouting or summer school event? I would like to attend to meet you and your neighbors. Please include me! Whether you would like to share information about your group, would like information about my work in the legislature, or are simply inviting me as a guest, I will make every effort to attend.
