Capitol Report: Ensuring a Foundation for Better Government

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Although we are in the early weeks of the 2014 legislative session, the main issues for the Missouri Senate are starting to take shape. I am happy to report that one of the Senate’s top priorities will be ethics reform.

Capitol Report

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri has more than 200 public boards and commissions that act as an interface between citizens and regulators. As regulations are passed down from the federal government or created at the state level, these boards and commissions are responsible for determining how to administer and implement these policies.

Capitol Report: Capping the Growth of Government

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Our country was founded upon the cornerstone of less taxation. Our Founding Fathers envisioned a limited government that provided only the most basic and necessary services, while allowing the free market to grow organically as economic necessity dictated. We are far from that vision today.

Through incremental changes over generations, we’ve come to a point where our government takes (through sales taxes, income taxes, property

Capitol Report: Protect Integrity By ‘Cooling Off’

by State Sen. Brad Lager

There is an inherent trust that should exist between the public and the elected/appointed officials they have chosen to represent them. This trust is at the cornerstone of our democracy and is necessary to make the democratic process possible. Without this trust, our government will weaken and if left unchecked, it will start to crumble.

The vast majority of elected officials are good people who

Capitol Report: Who Deserves Tax Relief?

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Earlier this year, the Missouri General Assembly passed the largest tax relief measure in modern history. This proposal was the first step in fixing our broken tax system that has hindered economic opportunities in our state for decades. This legislation would have lowered the tax burden for every citizen and business thereby allowing every hard working Missourian to keep more of their own money to

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.
