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.

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.

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: 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: Supporting Missouri’s Veterans

by State Sen. Brad Lager

As public servants, we all take an oath to defend our constitutions. For most of us, this amounts to fighting for or against certain public policy changes that we believe will impact the civil liberties of the citizens we represent. For the men and women of our military, this means putting themselves in harm’s way and possibly risking their lives for those of us here

Capitol Report: Defending Freedoms Through State’s Rights

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Our founding fathers established this great nation against unimaginable odds. Many gave their lives and others gave everything they owned to live in a country with a limited federal government, and therefore many freedoms. Unfortunately, over the last decade we have witnessed a federal government that wants to spend more, tax more and regulate more.

In recent years, our federal government has implemented a healthcare

Capitol Report: The Tax Credit Debate

by State Sen. Brad Lager

“Tax credit” has become a loaded phrase in the State Capitol. Depending on who you ask, they’re either the greatest economic development tool ever created or government give a ways crippling our budget. The truth lies somewhere in the middle. Some tax credits work, some don’t, and some are nothing more than special perks for special interest.

The legislature has spent years researching, studying and
