State Representatives Speak at Boonslick RPC General Membership Meeting
BRPC was happy to have our elected officials in the Missouri General Assembly as guest presenters for the organization’s June 12, 2017 general membership meeting. They gave a presentation recap of the legislative session, discussed pertinent issues related to the Boonslick region, and provided an overview of what is expected in Missouri moving forward.
Representative Korman shared that the budget was the primary focus for this session. He also discussed several bills that had been passed. HB93 provides a boost to the state’s small businesses, including many in rural areas, by expanding eligibility for Missouri Works workforce training benefits. Small businesses that don’t meet all of the program’s criteria may pool together with businesses that do in order to receive benefits. Representative Korman provided an end of session report for those in attendance.
Representative Bryan Spencer spoke about the need for more opportunities for technical training in Lincoln, Montgomery, Warren and western St. Charles counties. Several area employers have indicated they have jobs available for skilled individuals. Representative Spencer has been working with Representative Randy Pietzman to address this issue. They have scheduled a meeting on June 22 with key stakeholders including local government officials, businesses, and educators.
Following their presentations, the representatives answered questions from the BRPC membership. A special thanks to Representative Korman and Representative Spencer for sharing information and their time with us!
