Capitol Report: To Cut Taxes or Not to Cut Taxes?

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

Over the course of the last few weeks undoubtedly you have heard quite a lot in the news regarding some legislation I co-sponsored to cut the income tax for every taxpayer in the state beginning next year. Unfortunately, this particular tax cut has been turned into a hyper-partisan issue. It’s hard to discern what is true and what is not.

It would be very easy

Capitol Report: Right to Farm on 2014 Ballot

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

One of the most important accomplishments of this legislative year was passage of a ballot initiative to be sent to the voters protecting our right to farm. The proposed language will be on the ballot November 2014, allowing Missourians to vote to defend local farmers against powerful anti-farm organizations who have declared war on Missouri Agriculture, most recently with the HSUS (Humane Society of the

Capitol Report: Broad-Based Tax Relief

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

Currently the House has adjourned until September for the annual veto session. I have been able to catch up on my “to do” list… well, at least a couple of those items. I’ve also been able to spend time with my family and begin planning several events for the interim in district.

I am very much looking forward to seeing everyone again. I will be

Capitol Report: Nixon Sends Data to the Federal Government

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

If you’ve been following Missouri news, you’ve likely heard that the Department of Revenue, which operates the DMV, has been scanning, storing, and sharing private information with the federal government regarding our citizens who possess a carry concealed weapons (CCW) permit. We in the legislature have begun investigations and issued a subpoena in an attempt to answer at least two important questions.

First of all,

Capitol Report: What’s Going on at the DOR?

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

Over the course of the last month it has been brought to the attention of the legislature the Department of Revenue has been collecting personal data of Missourians from our drivers licenses and concealed carry permits. This action is blatantly illegal and even after we in the General Assembly subpoenaed the department to investigate the matter, they have been evading our attempts to garner as

Capitol Report: Living Within Our Means

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

Every day Missouri families and businesses are forced to operate within their own budgets, based on revenues and expenses. One of the best things going for the state of Missouri is the basic constitutional requirement that those of us elected to represent you in the legislature are required to craft the state budget based on the same basic philosophies as you folks at home. We

Capitol Report: House Proposal Exempts Schools from Prevailing Wage

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

It seems to me Missouri has a long and committed history of supporting education and reforms aimed to improve it. In fact, Missouri’s 30th Governor, Alexander Dockery of Gallatin, was famous for his reforms which improved schools.

Gov. Dockery is best known for dramatically increasing state funding for schools and the creation of school districts. So personally committed to education was he that his last

Capitol Report: Missouri’s Broken Welfare System

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

The budget process for Missouri has begun once again. It is very frustrating to see the sheer amount of money we spend on entitlement programs (welfare) in Missouri.

I have, hanging on the wall of my office, a letter written by a former Legislator from my district, Stephen Lincoln, who served in the legislature for years back in the 1940s and 1950s. The letter is

Capitol Report: Defending Gun Rights in Missouri

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

In many ways, I am very glad to see 2012 over and done with — it was quite a year to be in politics! However, I am excited to begin 2013 in the Missouri legislature. It is a real honor and privilege to represent my neighbors in North Missouri down at the Capitol. As I walked into the Capitol last week to begin session, entering
