MAPA Lobby Day

Join MAPA this year and together we can enhance our voice at the State Capitol. It is more important than ever that we remain influential at the State Capitol as we work toward a sustainable funding solution and fend off harmful legislation.

While there’s strength in numbers in politics, an individual constituent contacting their State House and Senate member carries a lot of weight. Legislators rarely hear from constituents – in fact, receiving 10 emails or calls on a single topic is usually indicative of a crisis.

Agenda:

8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. – Meet at Husch Blackwell Strategies for briefing

Husch Blackwell Strategies (view map)
217 E. Capitol
Jefferson City, MO 65101

8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. – State Capitol – Legislative Visits

Prior to Lobby Day, we encourage you to set up meetings with your local legislators.

Questions: Contact Dale Williams at 573-635-6071 or dalewilliams@moasphalt.org

SaferMo.com – Proposition D

WHAT IS PROPOSITION D AND WHAT WILL I SEE IN THE VOTING BOOTH?

 

Proposition D is a statutory referendum to fund Missouri state law enforcement and maintenance for highways, bridges, roads and streets. Because Prop D was referred to the statewide ballot by the General Assembly, Missouri voters have the final say on this important measure. Here is the ballot language you will see in the voting booth on November 6th:

Ballot Summary:
“Shall Missouri law be amended to fund Missouri state law enforcement by increasing the motor fuel tax by two and one half cents per gallon annually for four years beginning July 1, 2019, exempt Special Olympic, Paralympic, and Olympic prizes from state taxes, and to establish the Emergency State Freight Bottleneck Fund?” 

Fiscal Summary:
“If passed, this measure will generate at least $288 million annually to the State Road Fund to provide for the funding of Missouri state law enforcement and $123 million annually to local governments for road construction and maintenance.”

WatchFor.Us

Every year more than 600 people are killed in roadway work zones. Construction companies are dedicated to ensuring the safety of their workers and the driving public. Roadway work zones use a variety of warning systems, barriers, and other traffic controls to make sure that drivers and work zones stay separated, but it just takes a moment of distraction for an accident to happen and for lives to be changed forever.

The “WatchForUs” campaign includes a short film entitled “One Moment Can Save a Life” that depicts a fictionalized story on the impacts of distracted driving to one family, as well as real-life testimonial videos from industry figures whose colleagues and friends have been directly affected by work zone accidents. Additional resources include an infographic that brings work zone safety statistics to life and social media graphics to share on your social media channels.
