Rep. Nance E-Newsletter-8/27

This is the Aug. 27th edition of MO House Rep. Bob Nance’s E-newsletter. Mr. Nance addresses briefly the issue of health care. He also addresses some local issues in his district.

It probably seems like every time you turn on the television, there’s another plan from the White House and Congress making government bigger and our taxes higher.  It appears they have no qualms in saddling our future with a massive amount of debt. I fear any healthcare reform will require the state to supply more funds from our already tight budget.

I don’t want bigger government and I as most of you, don’t want higher taxes.  The Missouri House is and has been dedicated to strong fiscal discipline.  For the past several years, a balanced budget has been reached through tough decisions. Staying away from big government programs and wasteful spending will keep us fiscally responsible.

Most importantly, I would like to hear from you – the people of 36th district.  I hear from many constituents on a daily basis on various issues.

Most of you are concerned about the federal healthcare reform being proposed-this will be voted on by your federal legislators (Sam Graves, Ike Skelton, Claire McCaskill, Kit Bond). You may contact them by accessing the federal websites and let them know what you think at http://www.house.gov and http://www.senate.gov.

In the District

I am pleased to announce that the Good Samaritan of Excelsior Springs was awarded NAP tax credits in the amount of $107,343 for a 24 month period.

Also, the City of Lawson was awarded a CDBG in the amount of $120,000 for drainage improvements.

On Thursday August 13th, I was honored to speak to the Ray County Coalition on volunteerism.

The Excelsior Springs BBQ on the River was a huge success on August 14th and 15th. There were over 75 entries.

I attended the Clay County Farm Bureau meeting on Friday the 7th of August and the Ray County Farm Bureau on the 24th.

I traveled with Masonic Lodge #57 to the state fair on August 19th as part of a group providing children with a disc of personal identification through the MOCHIP program.

On a personal note, I was fortunate to work with Presiding Commissioner Jeff Adams over the last few years.  He was a great public servant and will be greatly missed.

In your service

Bob Nance
