Greetings Fellow Missourians,

    I am currently serving as the Legislator for Missouri State House of Representative in the newly formed 125th district—thanks to the supporters in the Primary elections of 2012, 2014 and 2016. This district includes the southern half of Benton, northern third of Cedar, and all of Hickory and St. Clair Counties. [see map]

CAPITOL REPORT - September 20, 2018.  Last Thursday, I enjoyed attending the Cedar County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting held at the Stockton Christian Church.  The guest speaker for the evening was Eric Bohl, Director of Public Affairs for the Missouri Farm Bureau.  I was greatly honored to receive the 2018 Friend of Agriculture Award presented by Cedar County Farm Bureau President Kalena Bruce.  This award began in 1996 to recognize state representatives who support strong agriculture policy.

Cedar Co. Farm Bureau President Kalena Bruce presented me the 2018 Friend of Agriculture Award at their annual meeting on 9/13.

State Fair Community College observed their Golden Anniversary last Sunday with a day long celebration at the main campus in Sedalia.  SFCC held its first classes in September, 1968, with 436 students and all classes being offered in one 35,000 square foot building in Sedalia.  Today, SFCC occupies more than 382,000 square feet and is committed to being convenient and affordable to its surrounding communities.   It is great to have this higher education learning opportunity so close to all of us in District 125.

I have heard a rumor recently that the Talley (Tally) Bend Recreation Area was going to be closing, so yesterday I met with Jim Sandberg, Operations Project Manager of Truman Lake for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  He confirmed this is NOT true.  We discussed the closing of the Windsor Crossing Recreation Area in Henry County last year.  A primitive campground with very limited public water and electricity, its lack of use was basis for the closing.  The Corps now has eight recreation sites and no current plans for closing any of the sites which includes Talley Bend.  If the Corps decided to close a site in the future, Sandberg stated the Corps would offer bidding to sublease the site for continued operation.  I hope all of these sites continue to thrive, because they are good economic generators to our district because of the tourism dollars spent on food, gas, and supplies when folks visit these locations.  For information on all 8 of the Truman Lake recreation sites, go to:  Recreation.Gov/Truman Lake.   The website provides detailed information and reservations for campsites, shelters, amenities, trails, etc. 

REMINDERS FROM MO DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE: 

The 2018 harvest is expected to produce large numbers nationally for both corn and soybeans. Anticipating Missouri farmers will need grain storage options, the Department's Grain Inspection and Warehousing Division has outlined options for producers during the 2018 harvest.  On-farm and commercial storage are two options available for Missouri farmers. Depending on the dealer class, commercial elevators may offer storage only or delayed price options. Farmers should also check with their local USDA Farm Service Agency for information on marketing assistance loans and loan deficiency payments for grain.  

In August 2015, Missouri’s legal weight limits for transport of livestock, grain and grain co-products increased. Livestock haulers are allowed to load to a maximum gross weight of 85,500 lbs. within the state. Those transporting grain and grain co-products during harvest season in Missouri can load to a maximum of 10 percent heavier than the weights normally allowed. 

When making use of the increased weight law, livestock, grain and grain co-product haulers must not use any portion of the interstate highway system or cross a bridge that is weight-limited to a level that is less than the gross weight of the vehicle and load. The agricultural weight allowances apply only within Missouri’s borders.  For more detailed information, please go to the MO Department of Agriculture website. 

MO DEPT OF CONSERVATION CWD SAMPLING EFFORTS FOR 2018 DEER SEASON:

From MDC-Jefferson City:  If you harvest a deer from certain counties in the CWD Management Zone during Nov. 10 or 11, 2018, you must take your deer (or the head with at least 6 inches of the neck in place) on the day of harvest to one of the following designated CWD sampling stations:  MDC CWD Sampling Stations  (You may take your deer to any station on this list.)   For questions about CWD sampling stations in Cedar, Hickory, and St. Clair Counties, please call the Conservation Department’s Southwest Regional Office at 417-895-6880.

The 31 counties for mandatory sampling are: Adair, Barry, Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Cedar, Cole, Crawford, Franklin, Grundy, Hickory, Jefferson, Knox, Linn, Macon, Madison, McDonald, Mercer, Moniteau, Ozark, Perry, Polk, Putnam, St. Charles, St. Clair, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, Stone, Sullivan, Taney, Warren, and Washington.

MDC confirmed 33 new cases of CWD following the testing of nearly 24,500 free-ranging Missouri deer through its sampling and testing efforts last season. The new cases were found in Adair, Cedar, Franklin, Jefferson, Linn, Macon, Perry, Polk, St. Clair, and Ste. Genevieve counties. These new cases bring the total number of free-ranging deer in Missouri confirmed to have CWD to 75. Learn more at mdc.mo.gov/cwd.

The CWD Management Zone consists of counties in or near where cases of the disease have been found. The 48 counties are: Adair, Barry, Benton, Bollinger, Boone, Callaway, Cape Girardeau, Carroll, Cedar, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Crawford, Dade, Franklin, Gasconade, Grundy, Hickory, Jefferson, Knox, Linn, Livingston, Macon, Madison, McDonald, Mercer, Miller, Moniteau, Morgan, Osage, Ozark, Perry, Polk, Putnam, Randolph, Schuyler, Scotland, Shelby, St. Charles, St. Clair, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, St. Louis, Stone, Sullivan, Taney, Warren, and Washington.

To help limit the possible spread of CWD, MDC encourages hunters to process deer as close as possible to where harvested and to properly dispose of carcass parts by leaving or burying parts on site, or bagging parts and placing them in trash containers.

ALSO:  According to the Wildlife Code of Missouri, the placement of grain, salt products, minerals, and other consumable natural and manufactured products used to attract deer is prohibited year-round within counties of the CWD Management Zone. Exceptions are feed placed within 100 feet of any residence or occupied building, feed placed in such a manner to reasonably exclude access by deer, and feed and minerals present solely as a result of normal agricultural or forest management, or crop and wildlife food production practices.

It is my honor to serve the constituents of District 125. If you ever have questions, concerns, or input, please feel free to contact me any time at (573) 751-4065. YOUR District 125 Capitol office is 413B, and YOU are always welcome!

CAPITOL REPORT - September 13, 2018. Marla and I attended a meeting in Osceola last Thursday evening on the ‘Blueprint for Development of Osceola Area Trails.’  The proposed trail is on Corps of Engineers owned land that is under the management of the Missouri Department Of Conservation.  Everyone attending the meeting voted to get started on developing new recreational trails in the area.  The first step is clearing and cleaning on the old Frisco Railroad bed between Osceola and Lowry City.  St. Clair Economic Developer Teresa Heckenlively is awaiting confirmation of a volunteer workday to be scheduled sometime in October to focus on the 1.5 mile portion north of where NE 370 ends at Gallinipper Creek just down from the Amish Trading Post.   I congratulate these organizations for spearheading this project:   St. Clair County Economic Development, Osceola Optimists Club, West Central Missouri Community Action Agency, New Growth, and Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission as well as many hard working individuals with the goal to better the community!  For updates on project workdays, please go to the Destination: Osceola Facebook page.  On Monday evening, the Hickory County Farm Bureau presented me with their “Friend of Agriculture” award.  This is a great honor for me; it is presented every other year, and this is the third time I have received this award.  It is awarded based on my voting record, participation in district, and my contributions and support to agricultural legislation and other issues.  When I went to Jefferson City on Tuesday to prepare for Veto Session, I received notification that Benton County has been awarded matching funds by the Missouri Division of Tourism to help fund marketing strategy development and media placement to increase tourism in the area.   Tourism continues to be one of the most important revenue generators and job producers in the state.  Congratulations to Benton County for promoting tourism in and around Truman Lake!  On Wednesday morning before Veto Session convened, I attended a presentation at the office of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce on Proposition D that will be on the ballot in November.   The presentation was given by advocates for the passage of a motor fuel tax of 2.5 cents per gallon annually for four years beginning July 1, 2019.    Passing this tax would generate at least $288 million annually to the State Road Fund to provide for the funding of Missouri state law enforcement and $123 million annually to local governments for road construction and maintenance which would encompass more than 13,000 miles of new highway pavement and improvements to 515 bridges statewide.   Proposition D has the support of Governor Mike Parson, Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe, US Senators Blunt and McCaskill, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri Chamber of Commerce, Missouri Association of Counties, Missouri Municipal League, and Missouri Association of Realtors.  Find more information at www.SaferMO.com. 

ACCESS TO TREATMENT COURTS:  Following the annual Veto Session on Wednesday, we shifted focus to the Extraordinary Session called by the governor to address two pieces of legislation he vetoed this summer. The first bill passed by the House would expand access to treatment courts with the goal of rehabilitating more Missourians so they can return to being productive members of society.  The legislation would consolidate Missouri’s treatment courts – adult treatment court, DWI court, family treatment court, juvenile treatment court, and veterans treatment court – and update state statute to reflect the reality of the treatment court system today. It would allow for the expansion of treatment courts to counties that don’t have them, and it would allow an individual in a county without a treatment court to be transferred to one with a court as long as all parties agree to the transfer.  The legislation now awaits approval today in the Senate before moving to the governor’s desk to be signed into law. 

STEM CAREERS: The second bill approved by the Missouri House of Representatives during Extraordinary Session takes an important step to encourage more young people to pursue career paths in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The legislation (HB 3) is meant to better prepare tomorrow’s workforce for the many unfilled computer science positions in the technology industry. House members gave bipartisan support to the bill and have sent it to the Missouri Senate for consideration. 

REAL ID GRACE PERIOD EXTENDED:  Missouri recently received a grace period that will allow Missourians to continue using their current forms of identification to fly domestically and enter federal facilities. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had granted an extension until October 10, 2018, but informed the Missouri Department of Revenue of a new grace period that will run through January 21, 2019.  The new licenses that are compliant with the REAL ID Act will not be available until March of 2019. Because of this, the state has applied for an additional extension, which the department expects to be approved, that will allow Missourians to use their existing identification until the new forms of ID are ready.  As the Missouri Department of Revenue Director said in a statement, “Between the grace period that’s now in place and the anticipated extension, Missourians should have no issue using their state-issued driver licenses and ID cards when boarding a domestic flight or for other official purposes after Oct. 10.”

CAPITOL REPORT - August 29, 2018.  This past week the citizens of Wheatland have been struck with tragedy.  Wheatland Mayor Harold “Rowdy” Rempfer and his wife, Julia, were killed in a vehicle accident on Saturday evening.  Harold and Julia have been very active, giving members of their community and will be greatly missed.  There will be a visitation this evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Hathaway-Peterman Funeral Home in Wheatland.  A celebration of life will take place at 1 p.m. tomorrow, August 30th, at the Galmey Community Bible Church, Highway 254, 3 miles west of Lake Pomme de Terre Dam.  My thoughts and prayers are with the Rempfer family at such a difficult time. 

Early morning last Friday, the Wheatland Volunteer Fire Department Building suffered fire damage. The firetrucks were saved; however, there was a lot of damage to the building and loss of equipment.  I have contacted the Missouri Department of Conservation to give them a head’s up that the Wheatland team may need some assistance in replacing lost equipment.

The Wheatland Volunteer Fire Department building suffered fire damage on Friday, August 24th.

CAPITOL REPORT - Aug 23, 2018. Last Thursday, August 16th, was Missouri State Fair Legislative Day.  Elected officials and state leaders, over 1,000 people, all met for the annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast for an update on the drought and other current issues in agriculture.   Following breakfast, we spent time visiting several agriculture exhibitions and competitions.  We then met again at lunch time for Senator Blunt’s annual Ag Advisory Luncheon.  Speakers for the day’s events included Governor Mike Parson, USDA Undersecretary Bill Northey, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, Congressman Jason Smith, Attorney General Josh Hawley, and Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft. 

The day was full of activities including time spent at the Missouri State Fair Beef House with fellow members of the St. Clair County Cattlemen’s Association.  I also enjoyed helping with a cooking demonstration with the Missouri Cattlewomen to promote “Beef for Breakfast.”  The Beef House was established in 1982 to promote the beef industry by serving a menu full of delicious beef selections to fair goers.  This yearly 11-day event wouldn’t be possible without all the volunteer members of the county cattlemen’s associations from across the state.  

My wife, Marla, and I then helped with the “Drive to Feed Kids” sponsored by Missouri Future Farmers of America and Missouri Farmers Care.  This event was part of an effort to educate the public about the state’s agriculture productivity and combating childhood hunger.  FFA members came together to pack 100,000 meals (buddy packs) for children in need; this amount is one month’s worth of buddy packs for a 32-county area which includes Benton County.  District 125 schools that benefit include Warsaw North and South Elementary Schools and Warsaw Ruth Mercer Elementary. 

We also had the joy of spending much of the day with our daughter, Anna, and some of our grandchildren.   It never fails to amaze me how much the children enjoy and learn by going to the fair.  They were fortunate enough to not be starting back to school until after the State Fair and took advantage of the day by going to all the livestock and animal exhibits and shows, 4-H/FFA displays and  competitions, fair rides, and, of course, great food!

I worked with fellow members of the St. Clair County Cattlemen’s Association at the Missouri State Fair Beef House last Thursday, where I also helped with a cooking demonstration with the Cattlewomen promoting “Beef for Breakfast. “

Marla and I got to spend some quality time with our daughter, Anna, and some of our grandchildren showing and teaching them about agriculture at the State Fair.

I was honored to participate in the “Drive to Feed Kids” sponsored by MO Future Farmers of America and MO Farmers Care.  A month’s supply of 100,000 meals (buddy packs) were prepared during the fair to be given to school children.

I was very humbled to receive the “Missouri Farm Bureau Friend of Agriculture” award presented to me by the St. Clair County Farm Bureau President, Gary Noakes, on August 20th.   This is my 3rd year to receive this honor based on my voting record, participation in district, and my contributions and support to agricultural legislation and other issues.

CAPITOL REPORT - August 16, 2018.  Classes are beginning in schools across Missouri as I write this report.  Just last week, I sat in on a breakfast meeting with the retired teachers of Hickory County.  School start dates and 4-day weeks were the main topic of discussion.  All of the teachers in attendance remembered when Missouri schools did not start classes until after Labor Day. 

Why do school districts feel like it is necessary to begin classes in August?  Some reasons given include being able to complete the first semester before the Christmas break; starting earlier enables more breaks to be scheduled throughout the year to provide time away for the students and teachers; students have more learning time before statewide assessments in the Spring; and a shorter summer prevents less academic loss known as “summer slide.” 

Starting early greatly affects the length of summer tourism in our state.  Municipal pools and water parks close early; there are one to two weekends less of vacation/travel across the state which includes enjoying all the recreational lake and river activities the state has to offer; and attendance is affected at the Missouri State Fair which highlights youth exhibits and the best of the best in agriculture. 

MISSOURI “FIRST” INITIATIVE: 

As I mentioned the state fair above, it promotes excellence in Missouri agriculture and raises awareness of the importance of the agriculture industry.  As well, the state is also continuing efforts to increase agriculture investments. The Missouri State Treasurer was on hand at the state fair this week to talk about the Missouri FIRST initiative and the role it has played in increasing investment in agriculture through the state’s linked deposit program. 

The Missouri FIRST (Financing Investment in our Rural, Small Business and Technology communities) initiative revamped the state’s linked deposit program, which partners with local lenders to provide low-interest financing to small businesses and agricultural operations.  Encouraging more rural economic development, the program helps farmers by making production, land acquisition, livestock costs and other ventures more affordable.  Missouri FIRST was launched in March, and has seen the total volume of active agriculture linked deposits rise from $29.3 million to $69.3 million since its inception.  The Missouri State Treasurer’s office works with local lending institutions to facilitate Missouri FIRST loans. There are approximately 115 qualified Missouri FIRST linked deposit lenders with 350 branches throughout the state. A list of lenders and program eligibility guidelines can be found online at MOFIRST.mo.gov

LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT IN ALMOST TWO DECADES: 

Missouri received good news this week as the state’s unemployment rate hit its lowest point in nearly two decades. Data released by the Missouri Department of Economic Development showed the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped to 3.4% in July. This is the lowest the state has seen since June, 2000.  The July unemployment rate is down from 3.5% in June, and it is also lower than the 3.6% unemployment rate for June, 2017, last year.  The state’s unemployment rate has decreased from the 3.7% level at the beginning of the year.  Missouri’s rate has now been lower than the comparable U.S. rate, which is currently 3.9%, for 39 consecutive months.  

Overall, the state’s employment levels have been on an upward trend. Missouri saw an increase of 8,800 jobs between May and July. The state has also seen an increase of 34,700 jobs since July, 2017. Health care and social assistance employment saw an increase of 10,900 jobs.  Durable goods manufacturing added 5,600 jobs.   Arts, entertainment and recreation; retail trade; and administrative, support, and waste management services each added between 3,500 and 4,000 jobs statewide over the year.
