Issues

Right-to-work

During a statewide bus tour in late 2012, Jones indicated that he wanted the Missouri House of Representatives to pass two bills, one a modification to the state's prevailing wage law and the other a ban of the use of a member's union dues for political purposes with that member's permission, before taking up the proposed right-to-work legislation. However, in 2013, he came out in support of considering the right-to-work legislation even without the passage of the other two bills, identifying right-to-work as a priority for the House. On February 11, 2013, Senator Majority Leader Ronald Richard indicated that he did not want the Missouri State Senate to take up right-to-work until the passage of the other two bills and suggested right-to-work would have a difficult time in his chamber.[1]

2011 redistricting

Republican members of the Missouri congressional delegation assembled in April 2011 to throw their weight behind changes to the two existing congressional redistricting maps.

The chairmen of the state legislature’s redistricting committees, Rep. John Diehl, Sen. Scott Rupp, House Speaker Steven Tilley, House Majority Floor Leader Rep. Jones, Senate President Pro Tem Robert Mayer, and Majority Floor Leader Sen. Tom Dempsey. Senators Jason Crowell and Brad Lager were seen entering party headquarters, but did not stay long.

Congress members Jo Ann Emerson, Blaine Luetkemeyer, Todd Akin, Vicky Hartzler and Sam Graves were said to have joined the conversation in person or via phone link.

The redistricting stalemate between the Missouri House and Senate has spurred debate and Crowell's warning of a filibuster against any attempt to pass the House version of the redistricting map.

The controversy concentrated on the way the two maps divided St. Charles and Jefferson Counties. The House map split St. Charles County in two and Jefferson County three ways. The Senate map featured a compact St. Charles County, and only two divisions in Jefferson County.[2]

No New Taxes Pledge

A minority of Missouri lawmakers signed the 2011 edition of the "No New Taxes Pledge." The Taxpayer Protection Pledge is offered by the non-profit lobbying organization Americans for Tax Reform with the goal of opposing all tax increases as a matter of principle. Just one out of 34 state Senate members signed the 2011 pledge. Out of 163 state House members, only 38 lawmakers signed.

Jones signed the pledge.[3]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Missouri

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Missouri scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
