Local Effect of Tariffs and Prison Reform in Missouri

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – When international trade negotiations are in the news, there’s often an effect that’s felt in Missouri. Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst explains why President Trump’s use of tariffs matters locally.

Also, the Missouri Department of Corrections wants fewer inmates. That’s why the Department is launching a program to help current inmates stay out of prison once they are released. It’s not a cheap program but, still, could end up saving taxpayers billions of dollars throughout the next several years. Director Anne Precythe describes the plan and why she thinks every Missourian should know about it.
