1,000 Miles in Missouri
Posted Thursday, March 27, at 4:17 PM
I spent last week on the road in Missouri, giving the odometer a workout as I logged more than 1,000 miles crisscrossing the state.

Posted Tuesday, August 6, at 11:03 AM

Any employer in Missouri that's tried to get a construction project off the ground will tell you the same thing: regulations, often from multiple federal agencies, add to costs and delay projects--which results in many of them never getting off the ground.

In November 2006, Claire McCaskill became the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Missouri, vowing to bring Harry Truman's no-nonsense style of accountability back to Washington, D.C. She was named as one of the select senators to sit on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, formerly known as the Truman Committee. In addition to working to establish a committee to examine wartime contracting, in 2009 she was named chairman of a new subcommittee that investigates contracting abuses throughout the federal government. The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) Subcommittee on Contracting Oversight strives to root out government waste by focusing on contracts and the means by which the federal government provides accountability to those contracts. She currently sits on four Senate Committees, including Armed Services, Commerce, HSGAC and Aging. From those committees, she's taken on: accountability and transparency, earmark reform, increased independence for Inspectors General (IG) that act as federal auditors, credit card regulations, security improvements to foreign repair stations that service our domestic aircraft, reforms to the reverse mortgage industry, consumer protections, and full benefits and resources for our brave veterans and wounded active service members.
