Capital Report: Modernizing Missouri’s Criminal Code

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The last time a comprehensive rewrite of Missouri’s criminal code occurred, the Seattle Supersonics were the NBA champions, “Three’s Company” was one of the most popular televisions shows in America, and I was preparing to start pre-school. The year was 1979 and in the 35 years that followed, there has not been a comprehensive review of our state’s criminal code. This has led to an

Capital Report: Legislature Stops Common Core Approach

by State Sen. Brad Lager

One of the guiding principles of our founding fathers was that the educational system of this country would be strongest when the decisions were made by those closest to the people. For more than two centuries our elected leaders strongly defended the principle of local control, however, within the last half century, our elected officials in Washington DC decided that the federal government should have

What Our Country Needs from the Press

by Lee H. Hamilton

These days, the scandal involving long wait times at VA hospitals can feel like some made-in-Washington spectacle generated by politicians looking for headlines. But it isn’t. It had its genesis in a late-April report on CNN that as many as 40 veterans may have died waiting for appointments at VA hospitals in Phoenix.

Capital Report: Repairing MO’s Unemployment System

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Would you be surprised to learn that individuals who have fallen asleep on the job, been drunk at work, been caught using drugs while at work, and even individuals who have been caught stealing from their employer have filed for and have been granted unemployment benefits in Missouri? Unfortunately, this is true. Missouri’s unemployment system is broken and hundreds of millions of dollars are being

Governor Continues to Shirk His Duty on Appointments

by Peter Kinder, Lieutenant Governor

A year ago I wrote an op-ed exposing Governor Jay Nixon’s dereliction of duty as it applies to the more than 200 state boards and commissions, most of which have vacancies or members with expired terms.

At the time, there were more than 1,000 vacancies or expired terms on those boards and commission. A year later, the problem is worse.
