Missouri News: Statement From Governor Mike Parson on Missouri Senate Action on Infrastructure

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (STL.News) – The Missouri Governor, Mike Parson, released the following statement today:

“During this year’s State of the State address, I called for the legislature to prioritize an infrastructure plan that would address critical infrastructure needs across our entire state without raising taxes.

I appreciate the collaborative efforts by the Senate and the House on this shared priority and am encouraged by the important step taken today to get an infrastructure plan on my desk this Session.

While our preference would be for an approach that does not put the fate of long overdue bridge repairs in the hands of Washington D.C., we certainly understand that any proposed plan requires compromise to reach a workable solution,” said Governor Mike Parson.”
