Senator Sandy Crawford's Capitol Report for the Week of Jan. 29, 2024

Thursday, February 1, 2024

    Feb. 1, 2024

We were successful in seeing some of our gubernatorial appointees move on to confirmation this week. Michelle Mincks of Bolivar serves on the Missouri Board of Nursing Home Administrators, Sarah Newell of Bolivar is on the Missouri 911 Service Board and Craig Jones of Brighton serves on our state’s Elevator Safety Board. I am thankful for the work of these constituents who take time to give back to their state and look forward to their continued service.

We are moving into the second month of the 2024 legislative session and still have many items to move through the process between now and May 17. I will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
