PROVEN LEADER | ROOTED IN OUR COMMUNITY | COMMITTED TO YOU

 

WELCOME and THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY!

By visiting this website, you have become more involved in the political process. Given our hectic schedules, it is often quite difficult to participate in state politics, and I applaud you for doing so.

During the 2013 session I sat on the following committees: Judiciary, Financial Institutions, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, and the Appropriation Committee for Public Safety & Corrections. I was also a member of the Government Oversight and Accountability Committee, which heard two bills regarding the expansion of Medicaid - one put forth by the Democratic Caucus (which was defeated in committee) and HB700, which did pass out of committee but did not reach the floor for a vote.

Since the House adjourned in May, I have been assigned to the Interim Committee on Citizens and Legislators Working Group on Medicaid Eligibility and Reform (Democratic Ranking Member), Interim Committee on Medicaid Transformation, Special Interim Committee on Privacy Protection, and Interim Committee on Emerging Issues in Agriculture Policy.

The Medicaid Eligibility and Reform Working Group has met several times over the summer, and I've traveled across the state hearing from a wide range of groups and individuals who recognize how important it is for Missourians to have access to quality, affordable health care. I look forward to using the information obtained in that committee when the Interim Committee on Medicaid Transformation works on drafting legislation to address this crucial need.

Again, thank you for your support, and for participating in our political process. Of course, feel free to email me anytime.

Sincerely,
