Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Jan. 21 Newsletter

Friends & Neighbors,

Another year has come and gone and I am happy to be back in Jefferson City.  My focus this session is on equity.  Equality is every student having a classroom where they can learn.  Equity is having support systems in place, new books and a comfortable environment where they learn.  The State of Missouri must demonstrate they have provided equity to all St. Louis residents.  I am delighted to continue this fight in Jefferson City on your behalf and make our state a better place.

In the interim, I held more than a dozen town halls regarding radioactive waste.  People expressed sincere concern for the history of gross negligence and the mistreatment of St. Louis City and County residents.  I have introduced two pieces of legislation this session to protect St. Louisians and first responders from suffering from the effects of radioactive waste contamination.
