Join the Discussion!
ASA is hosting an interactive & informative discussion, regarding the latest legislative developments, and the status of Right to Work AND the attempt to repeal Prevailing Wage in MO.
Speakers Senator Gina Walsh and ASA lobbyist Nancy Giddens, will explain the challenges in getting legislation passed; the process, the pitfalls, as well as current battles in the legislature, such as Right to Work and Prevailing Wage.
Is the proposed compromise enough to satisfy those seeking repeal of the Prevailing Wage?
Will Right to Work become the law of the land in Missouri, or will it be placed on the ballot, and overridden by the collective voice of the great people of Missouri?
Senator Gina Walsh was elected to the Missouri State Senate in 2012, pledging to honor the hard work, aspirations and faith of the people of North St. Louis County. In November 2016, Sen. Walsh was elected to a second Senate term and was chosen to serve as minority floor leader. Prior to her service in the Senate, Sen.
