He worked as an Attorney at Law for Doster Guin, Limited Liability Corporation from 1998-2008, and has also been an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Nassau County, New York, and for Doster Mickes James Ullom Benson & Guest, Limited Liability Company.

Missouri Committee Assignments, 2013
Joint Committee on Legislative Research


In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Jones served on these committees:


In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Jones served on these committees:



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]

Redistricting 2011

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. Tim 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 concentrates on the way the two maps divide St. Charles and Jefferson Counties. The House map splits St. Charles County in two and Jefferson County three ways. The Senate map features a compact St. Charles County, and only two divisions in Jefferson County.[2]

No New Taxes Pledge

In Missouri for 2011, a minority of lawmakers signed the "No New Taxes Pledge." Only four out of 34 state Senate members signed the pledge. Out of 163 state House members, only 35 lawmakers have signed.

Jones signed the pledge.[3]



In April 2013, Jones said he is interested in a possible run for secretary of state, attorney general, or state auditor in 2016.[4]
