Journal of the House


NINETY-SIXTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

of the

STATE OF MISSOURI

FIRST REGULAR SESSION

 


 

 

FIRST DAY, Wednesday, January 5, 2011


            The House was called to order at twelve o’clock noon by the Honorable Robin Carnahan, Secretary of State.


            Prayer by Dr. William Miller, Pastor of the First Baptist Church, Farmington, Missouri.


              Our Father, thank You for the symbols which surround us in this place. They are reminders of the sacrifice of those who have gone before us; they remind us of the privilege of living in a free state; and they also remind us of the challenges which lie before us.


              Assembled in this place is a group of public servants who have before them a huge responsibility and challenge.


              I pray for these men and women in this House who will represent the people of Missouri. I pray for each of them to have wisdom, grace and guidance from You.


              Each of these representatives now holds a sacred trust given to them by the vote of the people. It is also a sacred trust that comes from on high because we believe that government for the good of the people is ordained of God.


              As each of these representatives assume this sacred trust, the decisions they make will often be difficult. May each find in You, and help from another, the guidance they need to serve the best interests of the people of Missouri.


              Father, many of these representatives will travel weekly, some long distances. I pray, for each of them, safe travel. Each week they will be separated from family. I pray Your care for their families at home.


              I pray for the spirit of cooperation that will enable great progress in this session. God, as they do this difficult work, may the words of the writer of Proverbs aid them when he says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."


              I offer this as my prayer for these dedicated public servants and the Legislative Session ahead, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


            The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Troop F Color Guard, presented the Colors.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.




ADDRESS BY SECRETARY OF STATE ROBIN CARNAHAN


Good Afternoon. I’m Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, and I’d like to welcome you to the 96th Regular Session of the Missouri General Assembly. Thanks to those of you returning to continue your service to our state. And a very special welcome and congratulations to those who are here for the first time…and that includes nearly ½ of the members of the Missouri House.


For some of you who might be confused about why the Secretary of State is presiding over your first day on the job in the legislature, let me explain. I wield the gavel today for two reasons…law and tradition…two concepts you will hear a lot about in the months ahead.


By law, the Secretary of State presides over the opening of each legislative session until a duly elected Speaker is chosen. And by tradition, as the presiding officer I’m expected to speak…but only briefly. It’s also a tradition that everyone who makes it to the dais (and even some who don’t) also give a speech. So I’ll keep it short.


Today marks a momentous occasion - the opening of the 96th Missouri General Assembly.


Think about that. For the past 190 years…since Missouri joined the Union in 1821…citizen legislators, just like you, have gathered in this same way to set the direction for our state.


Like them, you also come from different parties and different regions, with different ideas, different constituencies, and different life experiences. Despite all those differences, you are united by your commitment to serve, and you share a common purpose - ensuring a bright future for Missouri families.


Doing this job, while always remembering that common purpose, is the great challenge before you.


It’s no secret that our state faces financial challenges. And the choices you’ll be making in the months ahead are both serious and likely to stir up heated debate. And they should. Because the decisions you make in the comfort of this beautiful Chamber will have serious implications for all those Missouri families who don’t enjoy these comforts but who nevertheless have entrusted you to work for them.


Millions of Missourians are counting on you not only to maintain but to continue building on the strong foundation that makes our state a great place to raise a family, start a business, and find a good job, affordable healthcare, and a world-class education for their kids.


So, as you struggle in the months ahead with difficult choices, just as your predecessors did, I hope you’ll remember two things: First, never forget that those everyday Missourians - the people you work for - are counting on you to get it right. And second, never forget that throughout our long history, Missouri’s leaders have guided our state in even tougher times - times of war, depression, and disaster - and yet, they stayed committed to the common purpose of ensuring a brighter future for Missouri families.


As you prepare to take on the high honor and great responsibility bestowed upon you this day, I’d like to leave you with one final thought.


For 125 years, the Statue of Liberty has stood as the most famous symbol of freedom in the world. It has endured storms and blizzards, rain and snow, extreme heat and bitter cold. And yet, still, she stands proud with her flame held high as a beacon of hope and determination to the rest of the world.


I was reminded recently about the unique construction of the Statue. Its outer surface, the part that we see, is actually made of a very thin layer of copper just 1/10 of an inch thick. The only reason the Statue has withstood all the ravages of time is not because of what we see on the outside, it’s because of what’s inside. You see, the Statue literally has an iron core. And that’s what gives it the strength to withstand the heat and storms and whatever else comes along. Maintaining the strength and integrity of that iron core is what holds up that beautiful structure that gives hope to all Americans who cherish freedom.


Just like Lady Liberty has endured because of her iron core, I am confident that our state will do the same. Because like that Statue, our strength is in our core – our people, our businesses that provide good jobs, our hospitals that heal the sick, and our schools that educate our children. Those people and institutions are the iron core that gives our state the strength to endure whatever challenges come along.


My prayer today is that in the weeks and months ahead each of you remembers that it’s your job to maintain our core by protecting those things that give us the strength and hope for the future. That will be your lasting legacy.


May God bless you as you go about this important work.

ADDRESS BY SPEAKER STEVEN TILLEY


              Thank you, and welcome….I am addressing you today as the Speaker of the Missouri House because your confidence, trust, and support made it possible and for that I will always be grateful.


              However the reason I stand here is because of the love and sacrifice of some very special people, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce them.


              Although I may be the Leader of this House, there is one undisputed Speaker in my own house, and that is my wife, Kellie Tilley.


              I am sure serving as Speaker will undoubtedly be one of the most significant achievements of my life, but the greatest honor and achievement I will ever have is being the father of my two beautiful daughters, Kourtney and Korrin.


              My parents taught me at a young age the importance of hard work, integrity, kindness, and compassion.  They have always been my biggest fans and believed in me when I found it hardest to believe in myself.  Please welcome my parents Everett and Bonnie Tilley and Linda and Dave Wooff.


              And last, but certainly not least, my role model, my best friend, and my older brother, Jason, and his wife Maureen.


              I would like to start by sharing a story with you that only my family members know. As an 18-year-old college freshman I was pretty immature…perhaps some of you can relate. I was more focused on “extracurricular activities” than I was academics, and my grades reflected this. My Mom once pointed out, "to say my academic achievement was less than stellar would be a historic understatement." 


              However, as time passed, and with the help of my wife, I matured and realized that if I wanted to amount to anything and fulfill my potential, I had to get serious about school.  So I did, and in my last three years I excelled academically. In October of 1993 I applied to optometry school. It was very competitive to get into a professional school because only 1 spot is granted for about every 10 applicants.


              Although I had done quite well in my classes the last three years, my lack of focus early on brought my grade point average to less than impressive, but I always believed in my heart that if I could just get an interview, if I could explain how much I matured, how hard I could work, and how much I learned they would give a chance and allow me to become an asset to the profession.


              However, November and December passed and no interview.  January and February passed; still no interview.  As March approached as the last month for interviews, I sat down with my father, and he suggested I go visit a respected optometrist just south of us.  This doctor was a person who has been recognized as a leader in the profession of optometry for a generation.


              I called this distinguished optometrist and he agreed to meet with me, so I drove to Caruthersville to ask for his help.  After hearing my story he agreed to make a call on my behalf, and, to make a long story short, I got an interview. The University of Missouri St. Louis accepted me, and the rest is history. Without having been accepted to optometry school, I probably wouldn't have become a doctor. I probably wouldn't have found my way into the Missouri House of Representatives, and certainly wouldn't be standing before you as Speaker. 


              That man was Doctor Terry Swinger. We all know him as one of our colleagues here in the House, Representative Swinger.


              As I reflect on my past, with the exception of my family members, Representative Swinger is the individual who has had the most profound positive impact on my life, and I want to stand here today and from the bottom of my heart thank him.


              The reason I wanted to share that story with you is because we can all learn a valuable lesson from Representative Swinger.  When I was a young man that needed help, a young man that needed someone to believe in me, he didn't look at me as a Republican or a Democrat, especially not the future Speaker; he looked at me as a person. 


              As we embark on this legislative session, let's not look at one another as Republicans or Democrats, but rather as normal dedicated citizens working to make this state a better place to live, work, and raise a family.


              We’re not always going to agree - even with our own parties, but we must agree to not let partisanship get in the way of good ideas.


              Within this story there is also a challenge, and it is a challenge I am placing before all of you. Dr. Swinger took a chance on a young man because maybe he was a local kid, or maybe because he believed I could become an asset to the profession, but he definitely set an example as a role model that I have not forgotten.


              And in return, I hope as a young man I was able to set an example as well…that it is alright to believe in people, that we can still have faith in one another…and always hope for the best.


              So, my challenge is this: that we all, in our entrusted positions, lead by example.


              As Republicans, we now control the largest majorities in the nearly 200-year history of our state. Because of that, it is my belief we now have the greatest responsibility in leading by example.


              From the book of Luke: “When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.”


              Missourians have entrusted us with the power of state government. And Missourians have been clear; they want…need…and deserve a change in the culture of how we operate.


              Missourians want legislative leaders who live by the same rules they do.


              So as your Speaker, I have a great deal of responsibility and therefore the largest role in leading by example.


              However, we don’t always have to lead by legislating. As elected officials our goal shouldn’t always be to create more laws, but institute better principles, a change of attitude, and a willingness to challenge the status quo.


              As your Speaker-elect, I believe you have seen firsthand my willingness to challenge the status quo. To accept the way things have always been done as the way they should always be done is unacceptable. My first change, for the first time ever, as an incoming Speaker was naming our intended Chairman more than a month in advance. We followed that by assigning committees to all members, both Republican and Democrat, before session started. The reason was so that, before this gavel fell, each of you could be focused on your issues and getting down to business for the people of Missouri.


              Second, I took a historic step in naming three Democrats as chairmen to substantive committees. I believe in the fundamental principle that a chairman should not be chosen because of the party under which they run, but rather by the quality which they possess.


              Missouri families face difficult times. Unemployment hovers over 9%, and many of these families have been forced to tighten their belts. We will also have to make more cuts this year, and so we in the Missouri Legislature must lead by example.


              Together, with Minority Leader Talboy, our combined leadership teams have identified savings of more than 10% and in my own office 15%. I applaud our Republicans as well as the Democrats in working together for that step in the right direction. This year we will prove to the citizens of our state that government can and will tighten their belts to do more with less


              Another example of challenging the status quo will come very soon. We will be approving the House Rules under which we operate. Within this set of Rules you will see several distinct changes, one of which removes partisan control of committees and reinstitutes the power of the minority leader to appoint his chosen members to committee. The expansion of special committees was done under Republican control. It limited the minority’s power and we are going to fix it.


              In addition, working with Budget Chairman Silvey and the Appropriations Chairs, we will move to require cost-containment plans from every state government department. Departments must realize we want to work together on improving efficiency, not simply hear requests for more dollars. Further, I am ready to grant subpoena power to the budget committee to root out more waste, fraud, and abuse.


              These are just some small changes, but they show Missourians we are willing to lead by example and committed to getting beyond the business-as-usual mentality and challenge the status quo.


              However, it will take more than this to get our state on the right track.


              As a citizen, I am convinced government should NOT be the SOLUTION to every problem….but as legislators we should try everything in our power to make sure government is NOT the PROBLEM either.


              Today, I would like to lay out a plan called the Show Me Solutions Initiative.


              The principles of this plan are built on the principles by which Missourians expect us to govern - Limited Government, Fiscal Prudence, Individual Freedom, and Personal Responsibility, but it is also grounded in common sense. These are also ideas that are not entirely new, but with a change in focus are completely achievable because, when many of us talk with everyday Missourians, their call has often been “Show me solutions.”


              There are five key component areas I see as vital to our progress.


              The first is a pledge to the voters that we heard them loud and clear. We will force government to live within its means, balance the state budget, and hold the line on taxes, period.


              Second, our top priority must be job creation. But first let me be clear. Government does not create jobs. Entrepreneurs, small business owners, and large employers do. Government’s role is not to run the economy, but to facilitate a business climate where the entrepreneurial spirit can thrive.


              To create a better economic environment for all job creators, businesses must have a peace of mind that they will not be hampered with new regulations, fees, taxes, or frivolous lawsuits. If we achieve that, THEY can create new jobs. Therefore, our plan calls for a moratorium on any new regulations, fees, or new taxes for small businesses. However, we also want to take a significant step in reducing and limiting unfair lawsuits that threaten the viability of good honest businesses - and that includes Missouri’s family farms.


              Third, bring more accountability to government. For instance, if someone wants a Missouri driver’s license, I think they should pass it in our official language - and that is English. And, as law enforcement personnel conduct a citizenship verification, why don’t we cross-reference those individuals with the sexual predator list. Finally, we have to acknowledge that human trafficking occurs in our state and that in the worst cases it involves the sexual trafficking of children. Let’s send a clear message to these worst of the worst that Missouri will not tolerate it and that no punishment is too severe.


              In Missouri, I believe we can also reach for greater accountability from the federal government. So, we will work on a federal repeal resolution to band with other states and reject out-of-touch, out-of-control, and policies outside their authority.


              Fourth, I believe in the fundamental principle that every child deserves a world class education. And it shouldn’t matter if you are a Caucasian student in Perryville, MO, or an African American child in St. Louis or a Hispanic child in Kansas City. I have asked my education chairman to not focus on what’s best for administrators, to not focus on what’s best for teachers unions, but to focus on what is best for our children’s education. Therefore, we need to pass teacher tenure reform that will reward good teachers and provide greater local control to school districts. We also need to strongly consider adopting policies to address social promotion. We are doing our children an injustice by merely passing them along if they can’t meet the minimum standards.


              Fifth, use responsibility and free market concepts to expand and increase quality healthcare. Missourians are compassionate people and willing to give a hand-up, but that is different than a handout. Missourians are interested in helping someone out of a bad situation, but Missourians have no interest in funding a bad habit.


              That is why we need to pass drug testing on welfare recipients.


              In Congress they believe the first 100 days are essential to establishing progress. However, in the Show Me State I believe our standards should be higher, and so my last challenge as well as yours is that we shoot for success in our first 50 days, so that in the first 50 days of this session, the House will have passed 75% of its priorities.


              Finally, in closing I want you to take this into consideration.  There are roughly 6 million people in Missouri, and only 163 get the honor and privilege to serve in the House of Representatives. We all have a unique but fleeting opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our citizens. 


              A few months back my Dad told me not to waste this opportunity. He told me I had a choice. As Speaker I could hop in the boat, float downstream, not make any waves, and let the river of history take me through the path of least resistance, then, at the end of the ride, just look back and be glad I was Speaker. 


              Or, I could hop out of the boat, make a few waves, and charter a new course.  I'm choosing to chart a new course and challenge each of you to chart that new course with me. 


              May God bless all of you, may God bless your families, and may God bless the great state of Missouri

ADDRESS BY SPEAKER PRO TEM SCHOELLER

              Secretary Carnahan, Fellow Members of the General Assembly, and our distinguished guests, it is an honor to be here before you today. Please allow me to pause for a moment and give tribute to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who, without a doubt, has granted me the opportunity to stand here now. To Him I say thank you.


              I am also tremendously blessed by my wife Mendie and our three children Emma, Dorthy and Johnny as well as my parents, sister, family and special friends whose support allowed me to make this journey over the past four years.


              To my fellow colleagues, I look forward to serving together with you for Missouri. As we do, may we keep in mind the words of our State Constitution in Article I, Section 1. “That all political power is vested in and derived from the people; that all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole.” Perhaps our own U.S. Constitution summed it up best with three simple words, “We The People.” We would do well to remember and recognize that our strength lies in the heart and spirit of every citizen, whom we are privileged to serve.


              In that spirit, it is our duty to be purposeful in every legislative action we consider making. May the budget and legislation we pass promote those we serve to become more self-reliant and empower them to embrace the freedom of responsible independence.


              In this past election Missouri’s voters made it very clear that it is no longer acceptable to expect them to tighten their belts while government continues to grow due to the lack of solid fiscal standards. The voters have told us that they want a state government that is structured to be small and efficient, and now we must make that our duty.


              As politicians, it is time for us to admit that we cannot solve every problem. We must be careful to question well-intentioned programs or laws that fail to create solutions and often create more problems. Let me paraphrase an old proverb to make my point: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Get the government out of the way so he can catch his own fish, and he will feed himself for a lifetime.”


              In the spirit of self-reliance we must be active in affecting our state business climate for the better. By diligently working to simplify our tax code, decreasing regulations and giving business owners, regardless of their size, the breathing room they deserve so that we will promote growth.


              Any increase in taxes or regulations, whether state or federal, could be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back, forcing them to decrease their workforce or worse, close their doors. In resisting the urge to over-regulate, we help ensure the very backbone of our economy, Missouri businesses, have the opportunity to thrive, which in turn helps sustain and create the vital jobs Missourians are looking for.


              In the spirit of equal opportunity we must embrace the goal of a second to none public education system. I encourage all of us to keep in mind that our children will be better served when parents and local school boards have the freedom to determine how to best reach academic success without the concern of bureaucratic red tape and one-size-fits-all policies.


              Our children deserve the best, and that is why I ask for a renewed spirit of cooperation that allows us to debate the issues without being swept up in the gridlock of self-interest. I was encouraged recently by a meeting with local superintendents and legislators where we had an open and frank conversation that I am eager to continue as we work together to improve our partnership with our local schools.


              I understand you did not come to hear a fellow most of you don’t know that well pontificate and so I will close my remarks shortly, but I would be remiss if I did not also affirm our sacred duty as a state to protect the vulnerable and indefensible.


              I will never apologize for the duty we have as a state to protect those who cannot protect themselves, whether born or unborn. For too long, abused children have taken a back seat to politics and bureaucratic rules. We cannot continue to ignore our failing system while many little ones have lost their lives or have endured life-altering injuries.

              It is time we commit ourselves to their protection and make no apologies for doing so. I call on Governor Nixon to work with us over the next two years to ensure we help the least of these, since their very life depends on it.


              As we work to strengthen laws that protect life in the halls of this capitol I challenge this body, each community and each faith-based organization to be even more vigilant in upholding the sacredness of life and the individual beauty given to us all by our Creator. In doing so we will foster the culture of life necessary to truly protect the unborn.


              It is not in the letter of the law that we will ever see abortions cease to occur, but rather in the spirit of our culture. We must choose to help mothers in unexpected pregnancies so that they are given every opportunity to bring their little one to full term. Changes in the law will be meaningless until life is held to be so sacred that willfully choosing to end it becomes unthinkable.


              As I close, I want to thank our men and women that make the ultimate sacrifice each day, putting their own lives on the line: members of the Missouri National Guard, our nation’s armed services, our law enforcement and emergency response teams that work to protect our communities and the freedoms we enjoy. It is freedom fought for since our nation’s founders declared, “We the People,” and it is in that spirit I say, “May God bless you and yours, our great state and this great nation we call home!”
