Capitol Report: Economic impact of health care

by State Sen. Brad Lager

For nearly four years, our state and our nation have struggled to regain the economic growth and prosperity that once blessed this country.

The goal of bettering healthcare for all Americans has led to an extensive debate in our country.

Capitol Report: Planning for our energy future

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The best time to resolve an issue is before it becomes a problem. And the best answers are normally crafted when we plan for the future instead of living in the present or dwelling on the past.

Unfortunately, proactive planning seldom happens in government, and as a result, governmental decisions tend to be more reactionary than proactive. This failure to proactively plan is both limiting

Capitol Report: 2012 legislative session comes to a close

 by State Sen. Brad Lager

Last week, the Second Regular Session of the 96th General Assembly came to a close. When the session began in January, we knew it would be a challenging year but we were committed to moving a legislative agenda that would strengthen Missouri’s economic future.

Capitol Report: Fighting to the finish

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Although there are only two weeks remaining in the 2012 Regular Legislative Session, there are still many issues needing addressed before this session comes to a close.

Last week, we spent most of our time finalizing the Senate’s version of the fiscal year 2013 state budget. In a process that began with the Governor’s proposal in January, the House and Senate have finalized their respective

Capitol Report: Fighting for accountability in government

by State Sen. Brad Lager

This past week, the Missouri Senate passed its version of the fiscal year 2013 state budget.

Unlike the dysfunction in Washington D.C., our state’s constitution ensures that the Legislature passes a balanced budget each year. Over the last four years, we have had to make some very difficult decisions in order to balance our budgets. Falling revenues coupled with exploding government entitlement programs have made

Capitol Report: Improving the climate for Missouri’s job creators

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Throughout this session, we have been working to repair Missouri’s fractured economic foundation. As a small business owner and believer in our free market system, I believe that government does not create jobs, the private sector creates jobs. However, I also understand that government does create a business climate through the public policy surrounding litigation, regulation and taxation.

The way in which our state agencies

Capitol Report: Tax policy matters

by State Sen. Brad Lager

One of the most important responsibilities of the General Assembly is the crafting of the annual operating budget.

Over the last several years, we have experienced many financial challenges which have highlighted the need for economic growth. Economic growth will result in job growth. Job growth will result in more Missourians fueling our economy and paying taxes, and these increased revenues will fund our state’s
