Senator Crawford’s Capitol Report for the Week of Jan. 1: Opening Day of the Missouri Legislature – 2018


This week marked the beginning of the Second Regular Session of the 99th General Assembly, and my first regular session as a state senator. It is truly an honor to be one of 34 senators in the state of Missouri. Each senatorial district is comprised of roughly 175,000 Missourians. My area (28th District) includes Benton, Cedar, Dallas, Hickory, Laclede, Pettis, Polk and St. Clair counties.

I am pleased that President Pro Tem Ron Richard has officially assigned me to the following committees:

Insurance and Banking

Agriculture, Food Productions and Outdoor Resources

Local Government and Elections

Veterans and Military Affairs

I look forward to serving on each of these committees and serving both my constituents and the citizens of Missouri.

I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to represent the 28th District. If, at any time, you have questions, concerns or ideas regarding state government, please feel free to contact me at (573) 751-8793 or
