Greitens to deliver budget address at Nixa school

(From Gov. Eric Greitens)

On Thursday, Governor Eric Greitens will announce his budget for Fiscal Year 2018 via a budget address at a public school in Nixa, MO.

The Governor announced this decision via Facebook, saying:

On Thursday, we’ll roll out our budget. But we aren’t going to do it in Jefferson City. We’re holding our budget address in Nixa, in a public school facility that serves children with special needs.

Our state’s budget affects real people. And we take that responsibility seriously. It’s our job to decide how to distribute the money that comes in, and the truth is, less money is coming in. More and more of it is automatically put towards things like insider tax credits and costly health care spending.

Even as the state is asked to do more with less, our budget protects our top priorities: more jobs, higher pay, safer streets, and better schools.

This address in Nixa is a reminder of who we’re fighting for. We’re fighting for the kids in towns and cities across our state who don’t have a lobbyist. Children with special needs, whose parents need jobs to provide for them. Families that need to know that the men and women of law enforcement have the tools and training to protect them. That’s who we’re fighting for every day.
