  • 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.

Moving Legislation

The House floor has been buzzing this week. We are hearing legislation on a broad range of topics and several bills addressing the four main components of our Family Recovery Plan.  As you may know, this plan combines Tax Reform, Healthcare, Jobs and Energy in effort to jumpstart our sagging economy.

Tuesday, we passed a bill that I am the sponsor of, HB 287, which classifies sawmills as agricultural property for the purpose of property tax assessments.  This will tremendously help small businesses. Oftentimes, these mills are the only employer in towns where they are and losing that is the last thing our rural communities need. Currently, mills are classified as commercial property assessed at thirty-two percent of market value.  A simple classification change could mean substantial savings for mill owners since agricultural property is assessed at only twelve percent of its market value.  This may also mean the difference between a mill being able to make it through these rough times or being forced to close its doors.  We see this as vital legislation. 

We sent the sawmill bill and several other pieces of legislation to the Senate for consideration. In addition, the House’s committees continue to hold hearings to give our citizens a voice on legislation.  This will help us make informed decisions in our state’s best interest.   

On Wednesday, the Special Committee on Health Insurance gave a hearing on a bill that would increase the transparency of healthcare information and patient safety by setting requirements to compare the quality and cost efficiency of healthcare providers.  These requirements would protect Missourians from receiving false or misleading information about providers in our state.  Missourians should be given all the necessary tools to choose one that best suits them. The bill also sets reporting requirements for hospitals that experience incidents resulting in serious adverse healthcare events.  The Department of Health and Senior Services would then be required to give a public report of these incidents each year.

Finally, an important piece of pro-life legislation was passed by the House Special Committee on Children and Families this week.  This bill would changes laws regarding consent requirements for abortion.  One of these requirements states that the woman must provide informed, voluntary consent to the procedure 24 hours before the operation.  In addition, the woman must be provided with the opportunity to have an ultrasound, not a requirement but she must be offered the opportunity. The bill makes it a crime if coercion or force is used.  Protecting the lives of the unborn continues to me one of my top priorities.   

I hope this gives you an idea of what is happening at your Capitol as session continues.  I am very optimistic about the bills going through committee and coming out to the floor.  Missouri is headed in a great direction, and I will continue to work with our members on both sides of the aisle to pass legislation that benefits you and your family.
