Representative Rebecca Roeber’s Capitol Report September 9, 2017

House Members Set to Return for Annual Veto Session

As mandated by the Missouri Constitution, the General Assembly will meet Wednesday, September 13 to consider bills that were passed by the House and Senate but vetoed by the governor. The annual Veto Session gives legislators a final opportunity to enact their ideas into law despite the governor’s objections. In both chambers, a two-thirds vote is required to override a veto. In the House that amounts to 109 votes. Twenty-three votes are needed in the Senate to successfully complete an override motion.

Congressman Cleaver Opposed to the Rescinding of DACA

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II denounced President Trump’s decision recently to terminate the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and reaffirms his commitment to protecting our country’s Dreamers. Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administration will end DACA with a six month delay.

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance:Houston - America’s True Character debunks the White Supremacist Narrative

Philippians 2:3 “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit. But in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.”

Houston is America’s fourth-largest city. Its metropolitan area covers about 10,000 square miles. That’s bigger than the state of New Jersey. And Houston ranks as one of the most ethnically diverse cities in America, where over 180 different languages are spoken by people from all different nationalities, skin colors, and religions. But something much more significant has happened this past couple of weeks in Houston, as it has taken center stage in the news media. Houston has squashed the notion of racism.


The Evidence of Faith's Substance: North Korea - The Worst Place on the Planet to be a Christian

Hebrews 13:3 “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them, and those who are mistreated, since you yourselves are in the body also.”

About a week from now, the communist, atheist nation of North Korea will celebrate its 69th anniversary of its founding, which all began when the Soviet Red Army liberated northern Korea after World War II. Russia repopulated northern Korea with many of the communists who had left Korea under Japan’s rule. Only two years after North Korea’s birth they invaded the south with the backing of Red China and Russia. How was North Korea stopped? American defense of liberty. We stopped them. We turned them back.


Phil Hanson, Truman Heartland Community Foundation

In my column last month I shared some news about some of our honorees for our annual Toast to Our Towns Gala on October 14th. As I shared last month, Lee’s Summit residents and community leaders Brad and Sandy Cox, will be recognized as our Humanitarians of the Year. Cable-Dahmer Auto Group, will be recognized as Heartland Corporate Citizen of the Year, and Ron Finke our Professional Advisor of the Year. This month I am pleased to share information about our seven Citizens of the Year being recognized by their community’s Mayor. 

Letter to the Editor: Health Care Policy, Not Politics

In recent weeks, some of our politicians have suggested that if the broken Obamacare law is going to be changed, the vote should be bipartisan. Whether partisan or bipartisan, though, political considerations should take a back seat to good policy in the discussion about how to make health care better in this country.

The Evidence of Faith’s Substance: Why God Exists Part 1: The Solar Eclipse, the Fine-Tuned Universe and Intelligent Design

Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork.”

In the past few decades, one of the most amazing discoveries about our universe has caused many prominent scientists to announce that our world could not be the result of an unguided series of events that happened naturally, but rather it must have been designed by a supernatural intelligence. This discovery is labeled as “fine-tuning”, and has breathed new life into arguments for the existence of the God of the Bible.

Governor Launches Initiative to Cut Bureaucratic Red Tape 
Governor Greitens recently started a new effort to remove the burdensome regulations and rules that too often stifle business growth and innovation. His office launched the NoMORedTape website to give Missourians an opportunity to submit recommendations for action to cut government red tape.

Missouri Prepares for Total Solar Eclipse 

Hundreds of thousands of tourists will make their way to Missouri next week to participate in what will be an once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of them. It is on August 21 that the moon will obstruct the light of the sun to create a total solar eclipse. The Missouri Division of Tourism estimates the state could have as many as 1.3 million visitors for the day because Missouri is one of ten states in the direct line of the eclipse. 

The Evidence of Faith's Substance: Is it Morally Right to Threaten to Destroy North Korea?

Psalm 145:20 "The Lord preserves all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy."

This past week, our Defense Secretary James Mattis issued a strong ultimatum to North Korea: "Cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and destruction of its people".
