Senator Sandy Crawford's Capitol Report for the Week of April 24

Thursday, April 27, 2023

The Missouri Senate has passed our own version of the Fiscal Year 2024 state operating budget and will go through conference committees with the House to work out the differences. By law, the budget has to be completed by 6 p.m. on Friday, May 5.


This week, we also passed House Joint Resolution 43, which would let Missouri voters decide if we should change some of the rules governing initiative petitions in our state. By modifying provisions for constitutional amendments, we can ensure that initiatives with substantial public support are approved.


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
