Hunters bagged the most turkeys in Franklin and Texas counties. 

Gov Nixon to MO Senate: Don't slash emergency funds

Thursday, 25 April 2013 12:07 Published in Local News

In the wake of bombings at the Boston Marathon and flooding closer to home, Missouri Governor Nixon was in St. Charles Thursday morning for the State Emergency Management Agency's annual conference. 


Speaking in front of hundreds of emergency responders at the St. Charles Convention Center, Governor Nixon called on the Missouri Senate to reverse their recent budget cuts to public safety and homeland security funding. The Senate's 2014 budget slashes federal funds in half to about $21 million dollars. Nixon said the funds are crucial to those in need.


"These folks needs these assets," Nixon said. "We need to make sure we have response capacity. This is not political and this should not be controversial." 


Nixon said that without vital federal emergency funds, the state's response to recent flooding and even possible homeland security threats would not be up to speed.


"I do not know why the Senate left it our of their budget, but we need to fix it," Nixon said.
