The gift of life is an inherent right bestowed on each and every human being at the moment of conception. As your Congressman, it is my responsibility to fight for Missouri values and protect the most vulnerable among us, including the unborn. Throughout my time in Congress I have fought for the right to life, consistently supporting pro-life legislation and pro-life causes.
Committee assignments are done and the legislature is ready to get to work. I will be serving on the budget committee again and chair the appropriations for Health, Mental Health, and Social Services. I have an added responsibility this year, as I will be serving as vice chair of the overall budget committee. This means that I will be part of all the budget subcommittees and the conference committees at the end of the budget process. This is the first time that the two positions have been combined for one representative, and I am honored that the speaker believed in my abilities and experience enough to give me this task.

The 100th General Assembly Legislative Session has officially begun. The House of Representatives and the Senate held a brief joint session to take a photograph in the House chamber to celebrate this occasion. A similar photo was taken in the First General Assembly. I guess they can bring out this picture before the 150th General Assembly and try to figure out who that bald guy from Morgan County was on the left of the dais.
Our Founding Fathers correctly believed imposing new laws on the people should only occur after careful thought, rigorous debate, and responsible compromise. When the government is divided between political parties, compromise becomes even more important. Unfortunately, with this current divided government, compromise has taken a backseat to hyperbole and political expediency.
