Capitol Report: Opening the Gates to Missouri’s State Fair

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The month of August marks the conclusion of an active summer for many of Missouri’s youth. However, there are a portion of Missouri’s agricultural leaders who have spent their summer in competitions at county fairs working to make it all the way to the State Fair. For those young competitors, this week marks the arrival of that journey as the gates open for the 2013

Capitol Report: Making It Easier to Build Broadband in Missouri

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The technological advancements of the last 20 years have delivered new forms of communication, new ways of sharing information, and new economic opportunities regardless of a person’s geographic location. Since 2000, broadband availability in the United States has soared from 8 million to over 200 million users today. While that is a staggering improvement, it still falls short of serving nearly 100 million Americans who,

Capitol Report: Affordable, Reliable Water

by State Sen. Brad Lager

For decades, we have been afforded the luxury that when we turn on the faucet or flush the stool, our water and sewer systems work. In most cases, they have historically been reliable and affordable. However, with the ever growing costs of infrastructure upgrades and the explosion of federal mandates, the future may hold dramatic cost increases for middle to small systems.

Throughout our state,

Capitol Report: The Need for Investment

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The best and cheapest way to solve a problem is before it becomes a crisis. A proactive plan will always allow for a more methodical and reasonable approach verses managing an emergency. Therefore, it would only make sense that Missouri would have public policy that supported and promoted this fiscally responsible approach to infrastructure investment.

Unfortunately we do not, which means that many of Missouri’s

Capitol Report: Missouri’s Infrastructure Challenges

by State Sen. Brad Lager

A safe and reliable transportation infrastructure is not only a fundamental responsibility of our state government, it is also necessary to support a growing and thriving economy. In Missouri, this means maintaining more than 33,000 miles of roads and more than 10,000 bridges throughout the state. Anyone who has driven the roads in Missouri understands firsthand the transportation needs of the future.

In recent years,

Capitol Report: The Need for Tax Reform

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The future strength of our economy hinges on whether or not businesses want to come to Missouri, create jobs in Missouri and grow in Missouri. Accordingly, we must create a climate in which entrepreneurs and business investors want to put their money to work in our state.

Approximately two months ago, I wrote about legislation which would have been the greatest change to Missouri’s tax

Capitol Report: Common Sense on Prevailing Wage

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri is a large and diverse state with tax burdens, cost of living and wages differing practically by city. However, Missouri’s prevailing wage rates, the wage rate paid when performing work for public entities (cities, counties, schools, etc), do not adequately reflect this diversity. As a result, in many cases the prevailing wage rate paid in our rural areas end up being substantially greater than

Capitol Report: Improving Missouri’s Employment Climate

by State Sen. Brad Lager

For years now, employers across our state have been voicing their concerns about Missouri’s unfair and unreasonable employment regulatory environment. These inequities increase the costs for Missouri employers which put them at a competitive disadvantage with employers in other states. Therefore, if Missouri’s private sector is going to be successful in creating new jobs and growing our economy, Missouri’s state government must bring an end

Capitol Report: Improving Missouri’s Regulatory Climate

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Over the last several years there has been a lot of discussion and much debate about government’s role in job creation and economic growth. All too often when government looks to “help” create or save jobs, what that really means is that they are taking the tax money paid by hard working families and financially “incenting” companies to stay or grow in our state. I
