Sen. Sandy Crawford’s Capitol Report for the Week of Jan. 24

This week, I was able to have one of my bills heard in committee. Senate Bill 743 would authorize the cities of Clinton and Lincoln to propose a levy for public safety. This would allow those cities the flexibility to make improvements to their police forces, by hiring and retaining additional officers, or purchasing new equipment. More importantly, it gives those who live in these communities the ability to vote on this opportunity. I hope my fellow members of my Missouri Senate Local Government and Elections Committee will approve this proposal to move forward.

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
