by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri farmers feed and fuel the world and they also employ hundreds of thousands of Missouri citizens in the process. As a result, the agriculture industry remains the largest economic engine in Missouri. Therefore, it only makes sense that the future economic health of our state greatly depends on a strong and vibrant agriculture industry.

During the 2014 legislative session, the Missouri General Assembly passed

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Over that last two decades, there has been a dramatic reduction in the number of Missourians who rely on the agricultural industry as a way to make a living. As a result, there are fewer individuals to support our rural communities and drive economic activity.

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
