Ready to Return to Missouri's CapitalPosted Thursday, December 29, 2011, at 3:51 PM
January not only means a new year, but it also means it is time for the next legislative session in Jefferson City.
The Second Regular Session of the 96th General Assembly will begin on Jan. 4, 2012, and end in May. It has only been a couple of months since lawmakers were in the Capitol dealing with tax credits and job creation, as part of the special session. I have no doubt most of the topics of the special session will carry over into January.
I plan to hit the ground running with several measures that have already been prefiled, including:
These are just a few of the measures I have already filed. For a complete list, go to www.senate.mo.gov/stouffer and click on the sponsored bills link under my legislation tab. A list of all of my previous columns and audio updates are also available online.
As always, I thank you for your continued calls and e-mails to our office. Without you, I would not be able to address the issues that are important to rural Missouri. We take every concern and comment seriously.
I pray we make the right decisions when we return to Jefferson City. It will be another difficult year. With your help, we will be able to make Missouri even better for our children and grandchildren, not only now, but in their future.
