Korman: Appropriations Committees Conduct Bill Mark-Ups

Welcome to the Missouri 99th District’s report on activities of the seventh week of the Session. This week in the Appropriations Committees we worked on what is referred to as “mark-up of the bills”. This process involves making changes to departmental budgets presented to Legislators by the Governor. Both the Appropriations-Agriculture & Natural Resources and Appropriations-Transportation & Economic Development Committees completed their mark-up. I had a few amendments in committee that passed. The appropriations bills now move to the Budget Committee for their review.

With two of my committees completing their work this week, I will be able to focus more attention on proposed legislation. My bill (HB 1395) to improve the quality of the Land Survey Program is currently in the General Laws Committee and I hope will make it to the House Floor for debate in the coming weeks.

MoDOT’s dialogue about local transportation issues and concerns will be held on Thursday, February 23, from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Warrenton High School in the commons area. I plan on attending and encourage you to also attend.

We had several visitors to the Capitol this week including members of Missouri Retired Teachers Association, Friends of Missouri Midwives, Second Amendment Coalition of Missouri and Missouri Propane Association.

I am happy to be here serving the constituents of Montgomery and Warren counties. Please feel free to stop by or contact your 99th District office at:
