While lead originally brought the first French miners to Missouri in the early 18th century, it was the dark fertile river-bottom soil that kept those earliest settlers here. Over the last two hundred years, agriculture has been and continues to be an important part of our economic foundation. For millions of Missourians, it is not just a job; it is a way of life. The

Capitol Report: Listening is Key

by Congressman Sam Graves

John Marshall, the longest serving Supreme Court Justice in history, once noted that, “To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.” Indeed, throughout my time in Congress, I have believed you can learn a lot more by listening.

That’s why I enjoyed traveling the Sixth Congressional District throughout the month of August. At every stop, dozens of people
