Superintendent's Blog: Sustaining governor's veto of House Bill 253 is best choice for Missouri

If you have turned on the TV lately, it's likely you've seen the 'Grow Missouri' advertising funded largely by Missouri billionaire Rex Sinquefield, who has reportedly donated close to $2.5 million through various political organizations in an effort to influence Missouri lawmakers. The commercials present state legislation known as House Bill 253 as a positive for Missouri that will grow jobs and help business. Unfortunately, this well-financed advertising campaign is not sharing the enormously negative impact of this legislation or the truth about this anticipated job growth.

Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed this bill during June. Since then, special-interest groups have worked to influence our state senators and representatives, urging them to override the governor's veto. To counter this campaign, the governor is hosting regional meetings across the state, including one in our school district on Tuesday, Aug. 6, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Stansberry Leadership Center, 301 NE Tudor Road
