Welcome to my website

This is a personal website.

The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) once again died in the legislature this session. Thanks to Senators Rob Schaaf and Will Kraus for adding poison pill amendments to the House bill that made it unpalatable when it got back to the House. The proponents of the national prescription database disguised as a PDMP will be back in force next year, so we all have work to do on the 11 legislators that flipped from NO in 2016 to YES in 2017.  Click on the PDMP tab and find out why this is bad legislation. 

Get ready Springfield. The City Council is going to look at the PDMP in July. 

On Monday, April 24, 2017, the Jefferson County Council made history when it voted 4-3 against a bill to join St. Louis County’s federal grant and start a PDMP. This is the first political subdivision in the nation that voted against PDMP legislation. Maybe the tide has started to turn.

There is a tab for the Locke and Smith Foundation (L&SF). You will find the results for the 2016 Locke and Smith Award ranking for the Senate and House. Click in the Scorecard and see the sea of red. The other activity I am involved in is the KTR Team. Take a look at the page.
