Things at the Missouri Capitol are in full swing. As reported, Swearing In ceremonies, Inauguration Ball, State of the State address by the new Governor, have taken place and Bills are being heard on the House and Senate floors.
Committee meetings fill the hearing rooms both before and upon adjournment of Session in the House. Committees that I have been assigned are: Consent and House Procedure, Vice-Chair; Insurance Policy; and Local Government.
My Capitol office is making my 2017 Legislative Survey available for 48th MO House District Constituents to respond, involving some of the issues that either have or will be heard in committees, and if passed, crossing the House floor to be voted on before they are sent to the Senate. Visit house.mo.gov/district/48 to submit your answers electronically. In the area at the upper right side of this web page, there is a link that says "Online Survey." As always, you can find the Bill language at: house.mo.gov; click on Bill Information; then Bill Tracking; and you may search either by the bill number or topic.
It is an honor to serve as your Missouri House Representative. Never hesitate to call or email my office if I or my legislative assistant, June Cardwell, may be of help in some way. Many of you have visited the Capitol along with many fourth-grade school classes in the past. You are always invited to my office and if you desire a tour, contact our office. There have been many of you who have contacted my office with concerns, so-called "road blocks" with a specific state department, or just needing information at the state level. Remember, I do not have authority over state departments, but we will contact or put you in contact with someone in a specific department that may be able to help. If you are ever near Jefferson City at any time during the year, please feel free to visit our Capitol Office, Room 235BB.
