The Summer of Our Discontent

by Lee H. Hamilton

Despite these last few months of hot and lazy days, it’s been hard not to notice a cold political wind blowing through the country. The magazine Foreign Affairs captured it with its latest cover, a mockup of a travel poster featuring a crumbling U.S. Capitol with the tagline, “See America: Land of Decay and Dysfunction.”

Americans are clearly uneasy. I know it anecdotally, because at virtually

Capital Report: Overriding Support for MO Agriculture

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri farmers feed and fuel the world and they also employ hundreds of thousands of Missouri citizens in the process. As a result, the agriculture industry remains the largest economic engine in Missouri. Therefore, it only makes sense that the future economic health of our state greatly depends on a strong and vibrant agriculture industry.

During the 2014 legislative session, the Missouri General Assembly passed

Capitol Report: Complaints on Common Core

by Congressman Sam Graves

These days, it has become clearer than ever that Washington is out of touch with the rest of America. This could not be more evident than with the new Common Core education standards.

These Common Core standards started as just an idea when they were adopted by Missouri in 2010, but they have evolved into much more. Originally promoted as state-based education standards, Common Core is

Capitol Report: Education Opportunities for All MO Students

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri’s post-secondary education system plays a critical role in our state’s economy. The degrees, courses, and programs offered throughout Missouri’s universities, colleges and technical schools enhance our workforce, bolster economic development, and allow us to compete in an ever-changing world. Therefore, as we look to the future, it is imperative that we have an educational system that provides great opportunities for all Missouri’s students.

Why Government Openness Matters

by Lee H. Hamilton

One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with

Capital Report: Supporting Missouri’s Future Farmers

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Over that last two decades, there has been a dramatic reduction in the number of Missourians who rely on the agricultural industry as a way to make a living. As a result, there are fewer individuals to support our rural communities and drive economic activity. Therefore, it is more important than ever that we support and encourage those individuals who desire to grow up and

Endorsing the Veterans’ Access to Care Act

by Congressman Sam Graves

When Thomas Jefferson wrote our Declaration of Independence he wrote of our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He was talking about freedom. We enjoy freedoms in this country that are found nowhere else on earth. It is important to remember that the freedoms we are so blessed to enjoy are because of the brave men and women in uniform, who defend it

Capital Report: Celebrating Missouri’s State Fair

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week marked the beginning of the 2014 Missouri State Fair. As the events kick off at the fairgrounds in Sedalia, we are reminded of the important role agriculture has played in shaping the history and culture of our state.

The timing of this year’s fair is particularly appropriate, as two days prior to its opening, Missouri voters narrowly approved a constitutional amendment reaffirming and
