Sen. Sandy Crawford’s Capitol Report for the Week of Feb. 14

This week, two of my proposals were heard in committee. Senate Bill 655, which was heard in the Missouri Senate Health and Pensions Committee, allows any county the option to provide coverage for all public safety personnel in the Missouri Local Government Employees’ Retirement System. This is another tool to attract and retain quality employees for our communities.

Also, the Missouri Senate Local Government and Elections Committee, which I chair, heard Senate Joint Resolution 37. This resolution would ask Missouri voters to decide if they want to change the threshold for initiative petitions.

I am honored to serve as your senator in the Missouri Senate. If, at any time, you have questions, concerns or ideas regarding state government, please feel free to contact me at (573) 751-8793 or
