Capitol Report: Common Sense Spending in Our Schools

by State Sen. Brad Lager

There is no single act that guarantees a quality education; and while I do not believe that greater funding automatically translates into a better education, I do believe there is a basic cost associated with securing quality teachers, keeping the buses running, and operating a quality school.  In a world of limited resources, we must look for every opportunity to spend our educational dollars wisely.

Capitol Report: Judicial Accountability

by State Sen. Brad Lager

At the cornerstone of our democracy lays the fundamental responsibility of our three branches of government. The legislative branch crafts public policy, the executive branch implements that policy, and the judicial branch ensures the constitutionality of those laws. Unfortunately, throughout the last decade, there has been an unsettling trend as the decisions handed down by our state courts are rewriting Missouri’s public policy.

Capitol Report: The Importance of a Fair Judicial Branch

by State Sen. Brad Lager
In order for our democracy to be strong, we must foster a system in which everyone has an equal and fair opportunity in the court of law. When a citizen goes before a judge, they expect to have a fair opportunity to plead their case. They expect that judge to make a ruling based on the merits of the law and not personal relationships, friendships

Capitol Report: Restoring Balance to Missouri’s Legal Climate

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Elected officials often talk about creating jobs and growing the economy. Normally, their rhetoric revolves around using the state treasury to “incentivize” a business to do what they want. Those of us in the private sector understand that a real pro-business environment involves limited regulation, low taxation and fair litigation.

Businesses want to locate and grow in states that have a pro-business climate. In the

Capitol Report: Thanksgiving

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Before the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights, there was the Mayflower Compact.  This document, which was drafted in the autumn of 1620 following 67 days of unimaginable challenges at sea, established a working democracy for the Pilgrims in the New World. Although it may have been relatively simple document, it laid the foundation for the fights for freedom ahead.

America’s

Capitol Report: Protecting MO’s Meals on Wheels Program

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Over the past few years, Missouri’s state budget has come under great scrutiny as we worked to weather the national economic crisis. During this time, we prioritized our expenditures and made government live within its means by digging in to the budget so that we could identify programs that were successful and end those which were not. One program which received nothing but praise was

Capitol Report: Supporting Our Teachers

by Congressman Sam Graves

In an essay on learning how to ride a bicycle, Mark Twain once observed that “the self-taught man seldom knows anything accurately, and he does not know a 10th as much as he could have known if he had worked under teachers.”

Teachers play an essential role in our educational system. We rely on them to teach our children the skills they need to succeed in

Capitol Report: Honoring Our Veterans

by State Sen. Brad Lager

From the American Revolution to the war in the Middle East, the men and women of America’s military have a proud heritage of defending the ideals and principles that embody this great nation. While this began with colonial farmers leaving their families to take up arms in their fight for liberty, their legacy carries on as brave Americans continue to make great sacrifices to support

Capitol Report: Keeping a Promise

by Congressman Sam Graves

We’ve heard the promise many times since 2008: “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it.” In fact, we’ve heard it at least 29 times according to one report.

However, it turns out that if you like your health insurance plan, you aren’t necessarily able to keep it because it may not comply with the regulations set out in Obamacare. In light of
