“The growth in federally mandated state spending continues to increase the size of state government and threaten strategic investments in Missouri's future. It's time to modernize Missouri state government to do more with less through technology, innovation, and a little more Missouri common sense.

Create a safe system to allow DMV offices to check for Personal Property taxes paid to avoid carrying all the paper work. Also create a system where insurance agents/companies can notify the State DMV or troopers when insurance has lapsed or dropped. This will help those affected by uninsured motorists.
Create an online data base where Highly Qualified MO educators can be encouraged to submit questions that DESE can use to write those assessments. Missouri is full of teachers who know their stuff! Let's utilize them!
Embrace innovative companies like Uber instead of adding regulations to block them!
Repeal the State Income Tax and add a value tax on goods. This way everyone pays, not just those with a job.
Eliminate unnecessary professional licensing requirements. Let the free market work!
