Capital Report: Balancing MO’s Budget and Its Branches

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Under Missouri’s Constitution, the legislature crafts the state’s annual budget and the executive branch implements that budget. In my opinion, it is the most important duty we undertake each year. The House and Senate budget committees spend hundreds of hours going through each and every line-item so that we have the highest confidence possible that the budget is balanced and our state’s fiscal stability is

Capital Report: The Need for Tort Reform

by State Sen. Brad Lager

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.
