Gina on the Issues

Gina is a state senator for all of us!

You need to know what your state government is doing about the issues that matter to you. There is so much legislative activity; some of it is bound to impact your life or business directly.  As one of three co-equal branches of state government, the Missouri General Assembly is responsible for enacting the laws by which the State of Missouri is governed.

My legislative proposals and budget priorities will reflect the principles of rebuilding our economy, our schools and our local communities.  These are common sense issues that truly matter to the citizens of Missouri. My hope is that the Republican majority does not veer from these important challenges to devote too much time on divisive anti-worker issues, but that we stick to these very worthy goals and work in a bipartisan fashion to put Missourians back to work, provide quality educational opportunities, and move the state forward.

I stand ready to work with my colleagues in the State Senate and the governor to reach these goals.
