Seizing a historic opportunity, Missouri lawmakers have passed a budget that boldly invests in Missouri’s economic potential. The state’s new budget, subject to approval from Gov.

Mike Parson and our lawmakers seized on the opportunity and crafted a budget that takes a bold yet fiscally responsible approach that will pay dividends for decades to come.”
