Keep local control local!

The Missouri Legislature continues to move legislation (HB 517 and HB 75)that will take away our ability to act locally to solve problems.

State lawmakers are trying to tell local communities what is best for them. Missouri isn't a one size fits all state communities know what is best for them.

Local residents and leaders know how to solve problems facing their community - because they see them up close. When they work together to come up with a solution, the state should help them improve it, not strike it down.

We are particularly concerned because these bills will stop our communities from finding and implementing solutions to address local health issues like youth tobacco use. 

Tell your state senator and the house rules committee to stop trying to control local communities.
