This week, Washington D.C. was abuzz with visitors from across the country. From school groups to credit unions to farmers, I met with dozens of Missourians to learn more about their missions and discuss their policy priorities.
The House of Representatives and the Senate has made it to Spring Break. The beginning of session is full of celebration and excitement and then the work begins. At the midway point we have most of the work on the budget completed and several bills are moving through the committees and on to the House floor. That also means that there are some tough votes and difficult debate on sensitive issues that not everyone agrees on so emotions tend to run a little high this time of year. The spring break is needed to give everyone a little time away from each other and to refocus our priorities.
We have reached the halfway point of the legislative session. Looking back on my time spent in the Missouri Senate so far, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of the 6th Senatorial District. There have been some long nights and some trying times, but I understand it all comes with the responsibility of serving you in the Missouri General Assembly.
We have reached the middle point of session and I want to take a moment to reflect on the unique opportunities presented to me. This session I was able to contribute to the state’s effort to protect those who are most vulnerable to harm in our state. I’ve also been given the opportunity to correct some of the injustices I’ve seen done towards people during my time as a lawyer. I want to take a moment and look back on what we here have done to protect the people and to right wrongs.
