Sen. Rick Brattin’s Capitol Report, for the Week of Jan. 25: Working for You

The annual legislative session is off and running at the State Capitol in Jefferson City. For the next five months, the Missouri Senate and House will debate the important issues of our state and craft a state budget that will see us through the next fiscal year. National politics is perhaps more polarized than at any time in recent memory. It seems every issue takes on not just practical and political implications, but personal and cultural ones as well. This has been exacerbated by the effects of COVID-19, which has devastated our economy, disrupted our children’s education and changed practically everything about the way we live and interact with one another. At the same time, violence is on the rise across the country with some people are targeting law enforcement and doing everything in their power to destabilize our society.

Statement from Sen. Rick Brattin Regarding Senate Bill 66

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Rick Brattin, R-Harrisonville, issued a statement relating to a public safety measuring he is sponsoring, Senate Bill 66:. “The right to peacefully protest is one of our most valued constitutional rights, but looting and rioting are not. I believe self-proclaimed activists and professional agitators are using violence and chaos to intimidate law-abiding citizens and destabilize our communities. We can’t allow this to continue. The legislation I filed will hold rioters and looters accountable while respecting the right of Missourians to peacefully protest. It also protects our men and women in law enforcement and gives our courts and prosecutors additional tools to keep our communities safe. Nothing in the bill allows drivers to run down protestors blocking traffic. Rather, it gives the mother doing nothing more than driving her children home from school the protection of the law when a violent mob attacks her vehicle, smashing windows and threatening her life. That mother should be able to get to safety without fear of prosecution or being sued. It’s a sad day in this country when we are more concerned with protecting violent criminals than protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens. I’m proud to sponsor this bill and look forward to working with my colleagues to pass it into law.”
