Back to Work at the State Capitol: An Early Update

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – We are less than two weeks into the 2016 Missouri Legislative Session and lawmakers, lobbyists and activists are already hard at work.

Whether it’s progress or political misconduct that’s happening depends on your perspective.

This week, Democratic State Rep. Michael Butler (below, left) and former Republican State Rep. Carl Bearden, who now runs the conservative advocacy group United for Missouri, give us an update on what they expect to happen at the State Capitol this session. They also discuss the impact it all could have on your community, on your money and on your family.

Medicaid expansion is being proposed again. So is what supporters call “Right To Work” legislation. We also discuss suggested reforms regarding law enforcement and business regulation ideas (“including “Ban The Box”).

With 2016 being an elections year, this Legislative Session is certain to be eventful.
