Represent.Us Applauds Introduction of Missouri Anti-Corruption Act

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

Jefferson City, MO — Today, Republican State Senator Rob Schaaf introduced the Missouri Anti-Corruption Act (SJR-13) — a proposal that would overhaul Missouri’s state ethics, lobbying, and campaign finance laws.

Represent.Us director Josh Silver issued the following statement:

“We applaud Senator Schaaf for introducing an Anti-Corruption Act that sets an example for the entire nation. This legislation protects Missouri’s government from the cronyism and corruption that defines politics in Jefferson City, Washington, DC, and statehouses across the country. Conservatives and progressives alike are united in the belief that the exchange of money for political influence is a fundamental threat to our Republic and must be outlawed. The Missouri Anti-Corruption Act does just that.”

For more information on the Missouri Anti-Corruption Act, please refer to Sen. Schaaf’s press release and fact sheet, or contact Sen. Schaaf’s office at (573) 751-2183 or rob.schaaf@senate.mo.gov. Sen. Schaaf’s op-ed on the Missouri Anti-Corruption Act can be found here.
