Capital Report: Caring for Missouri’s Seniors

by State Sen. Brad Lager

As a civilized society, we take the responsibility of caring for those who truly cannot care for themselves very seriously. In some cases, these individuals are senior citizens who have worked for decades to provide for their families and help build the communities in which they live. As they have reached their golden years, economic pressures make it difficult for them to meet their most

Senator McCaskill on Keystone XL Pipeline

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, a longtime supporter of construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, today released the following statement after a bipartisan 59-41 Senate vote on the pipeline’s construction fell one vote short of advancing the project:

Capitol Perspectives: Missouri’s I-70 Democrats

by Phill Brooks

Several years ago, I coined the phrase “I-70 Democrats” to describe the fate voters had handed Democrats in Missouri’s Senate. Most of the districts they represented on each side of the I-70 corridor between St. Louis and Kansas City.

The Senate’s out-going Democratic leader, Maida Coleman, laughed when I came up with the I-70 Democrats phrase in our conversation. But we both knew it was an exaggeration.

Capitol Perspectives: Nixon’s Misguided Intent

To protect the public from journalists

by Phill Brooks

The day after the November elections, Gov. Jay Nixon provided the most detailed explanation yet as to why his administration blocks reporters from talking with agency directors and experts. His explanation ultimately came down to the argument that it was too harmful to the public for journalists to have that kind of access.

The explanation came at a news conference where

The New ‘Fourth Estate’ Surpassing the Media

by Lee H. Hamilton

Because of its power to influence public affairs, the press has long been known as “the Fourth Estate.” But I think the media may have been displaced. These days, it’s lobbyists who seem to carry the most clout in Washington.

Here’s a case in point. When Congress closed at the beginning of August for its end-of-summer recess, it faced wide-scale derision for having accomplished next to

Capital Report: Missouri Voters Have Spoken

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last Tuesday, Missourians across this great state exercised their constitutional right to vote and let their voices be heard. Their desires, their decisions, and their votes sent a clear message while setting the direction for our state and nation.

Missouri’s voters re-elected our State Auditor along with several new state senators and state representatives. They passed a measure to make it easier to prosecute individuals
