Capitol Report: A Surge at the Border

by Congressman Sam Graves

I’ve often said, “You can’t fix a leaky faucet with the water still running.” That’s not only good advice in your kitchen, but the same principle holds true for immigration reform and dealing with the current situation at our southwestern border. We’ve seen more than 50,000 unaccompanied alien children have crossed into the U.S. in recent months.

The reason we are witnessing this surge at the

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

More EPA Regulation, Higher Costs

by Congressman Sam Graves

I always hear stories about how government bureaucrats are becoming increasingly aggressive. Our out-of-control government is putting the squeeze on Missouri’s middle class, and the biggest bully of the bunch is the EPA.

You and I know there are already too many regulations on the books. But the EPA has more coming everyday with no end in sight.

First the EPA tried to regulate farm dust

Capital Report: Gavel Falls on the 2014 Legislative Session

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The Second Regular Session of the 97th General Assembly has officially come to an end. At the start of the year, we laid out an aggressive agenda focused on improving our educational system, reducing our tax burden, and limiting the size and scope of government. Combined, these issues would help strengthen our state’s economy and set us on a path toward prosperity.

Creating an educational

Capitol Report: Historic Tax Cut Clears Final Hurdle

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week, with a bipartisan vote, the Missouri General Assembly successfully overrode Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a broad-based tax relief package which cleared the final step towards enactment. With this veto override came the first income tax cut in Missouri in almost a century. It also marked the first step in a long journey towards fixing Missouri’s broken tax system.

This tax cut will

Capitol Report: Fighting to the Finish

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The final weeks of every legislative session are long and demanding as we work to complete our top priorities before the final gavel falls. Throughout this session, we have focused on improving the economic climate in our state thereby increasing the number of economic opportunities for all Missourians.

Last week, we finalized the Senate’s version of the fiscal year 2015 state budget, and the House

Capitol Report: A Streamlined, Efficient Government

by Congressman Sam Graves

Government overreach continues to be a problem under President Obama. In addition to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) land grab threatening Missouri property owners and livestock producers, there is ongoing duplication of federal programs at the Small Business Administration (SBA).

Last week, the House Small Business Committee I chair exposed the SBA’s experimentation with unproven programs that will detract from their core services intended to serve

Fixing Missouri’s Broken Tax Credit Program

Capitol Report

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week, the legislature sent to the governor a broad-based tax relief bill that, over the next eight years, will allow hard working Missourians to keep more of their own money. Unlike any of the neighboring states which have been cutting taxes, this legislation contains triggers which guarantee certain benchmarks are met, such as increased revenue collections and education funding, before the tax

Capitol Report: Supreme Court Strikes Blow Against Employers

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week, the Missouri Supreme Court continued its attack on job creators as it once again eroded away at Missouri’s employment law. In a 5-2 decision, the court overturned 30 years of case law when dealing with workers compensation claims. This decision opens the door for excessive and frivolous litigation against Missouri employers.

Following the court’s actions, employees no longer have to prove that workers’
