  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

The 2009 Legislative Session Begins With Focus on Missouri Families

This week marked the opening of the 2009 legislative session and with it the beginning of our efforts to provide relief to Missourians struggling with the current economic downturn. Every session brings with it a new set of challenges and this one will be no different. We know hard-working Missourians want and need help during these trying times. While the federal government is preoccupied with billion dollar bailout plans for big business, we in the Missouri House will place our focus where it is needed most Ė on Missouri families.

During opening day proceedings, I had the honor of voting in our new leader, Speaker of the House Ron Richard, who will direct our legislative efforts to help Missouri families. Speaker Richard has worked over the years to promote economic development and create good-paying jobs for Missourians. I firmly believe he and the other members of our leadership team will provide the guidance we need as we work to revitalize our economy through job creation initiatives; lower the tax burden on hard-working Missourians; explore alternative energy sources to lessen our dependency on foreign oil; and improve the affordability and accessibility of our system of healthcare. 

During his opening day address, Speaker Richard outlined those four main points that make up what we are calling our Family Recovery Plan. Under the plan we will work to expand successful job-creating initiatives like the Quality Jobs Program and develop innovative incentives that will attract new businesses to our state. We will work to revise our personal income tax to provide a modest tax cut that will keep more of your hard-earned dollars in your pocket where they belong. We will explore ways to improve our system of healthcare so it is affordable and accessible while at the same time ensuring it is free of the waste, fraud and abuse that has plagued it in the past. And we will find ways to promote development of our alternative energy sources such as clean coal, wind farms, hydroelectric and nuclear power.

We know the Family Recovery Plan is essential to provide Missourians with the assistance they need during these tough economic times. However, we also know there are many more issues we will face this session. At the top of our list will be crafting a budget that spends your tax dollars in a way that is responsible and cost effective. The sound financial planning of the past has placed our state in a fortunate position during these trying times, but we must face the realities of a tight budget year and be prepared to use your tax dollars in the most efficient manner possible.  Also this year we will work to improve our system of education so that each child is prepared for future success and we will continue efforts to ensure the goal of a college education is one that is attainable for every Missouri student. We will reaffirm our commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn and build on the success the legislature has had in greatly reducing the number of abortions in our state in recent years. In addition, we will stand firm in protecting the rights of gun owners regardless of how the national political landscape may change.

We have an aggressive agenda before us this session and I am excited to take on the challenge of turning some of these ideas into effective policies. The Family Recovery Plan will be the cornerstone on which our legislative successes will be built, but it is only one part of the body of work we will complete this year. For any of the legislation we pass, you can rest assured we will have the best interests of Missouri families at heart. Where our federal government has failed to act, the Missouri House will remain committed to seeking effective solutions to the problems faced by Missourians from all walks of life.

Once again I want to remind everyone that the 2009 Legislative Survey is still being conducted online.  Simply go to and click on the link to the survey, I value your thoughts and opinions and this is one way for you to share them with me.  You can also call (573) 751-1446 and request a printed copy of the survey if you donít have access to the internet.
