From the desk of US Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler

Vicky Hartzler
Today’s EPA announcement rolling back a major federal land grab is a huge win for Missouri farmers, builders, businesses, land owners, and local governments.

For the past two years, Missourians have been faced with regulatory uncertainty from the flawed ‘Waters of the United States’ rule that would put 99% of Missouri land under federal jurisdiction.

A more balanced approach and long-term certainty is needed to balance local, state, and federal control over property and water rights across the country.

I look forward to continued leadership from EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt that will provide protection for our natural resources in the least intrusive way to the local economy.

Clinton man found guilty, Sentencing to come later

Richard McNabb
In early Jan. of this year, Clinton Police officers were made aware of a threat that had been made against Henry County Prosecutor Richard Shields. 

The threat was apparently made by 34 year old Richard McNabb of Clinton. 

McNabb at the time had pending court cases for a charge of murder in the second degree and neglect of a child resulting in a death, along with unrelated drug charges. 

According to witnesses, McNabb threatened to kill Prosecutor Shields by shooting him and then he intended to kill himself. With the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Deputies of the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Clinton Police took eventually took McNabb into custody. 

Mr. McNabb was charged with 24 hour investigation of attempting to commit murder in the first degree. There is no new court date for McNabb concerning this charge. 

However, as far as the murder and neglect charges, yesterday afternoon the court announced that McNabb was found guilty of the class C felony of neglect of a child. 

The court found him to be a prior and persistent felony offender, which makes the maximum penalty 15 years in the department of corrections. The court ordered a sentencing assessment report and set sentencing for Sept 21.

Celebrate Freedom the Independent Way

JEFFERSON CITY –To assure that you only see the flashing lights of fireworks this Independence Day, and not those of a police car, be smart – don’t drive impaired. 

Local law enforcement will be especially watchful for impaired drivers June 30 – July 4 for this year’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

In all of the 2016 fatal and serious injury crashes in Missouri, 15 percent involved a substance-impaired driver. Throughout the Fourth of July holiday last year, seven people lost their lives and 38 were seriously injured in Missouri traffic crashes. Of those, three fatalities and five serious injuries involved a substance-impaired driver.

“Whether it’s the loss of a loved one or someone is seriously injured, each and every impaired driving crash is 100 percent preventable,” said Meghan Carter, executive director of MADD Missouri. “We remind everyone, if your plans include alcohol, whether on land or on water, plan ahead for a safe ride home.”

The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety recommends simple tips to avoid a substance-impaired driving tragedy: designate a sober driver, call a cab or sober friend, call law enforcement if you suspect an impaired driver and always wear your safety belt.

Keep in mind some of the consequences of choosing to drive impaired:

· If you cause a fatal crash, you can be charged with involuntary manslaughter – a felony resulting in up to seven years in prison, a $5,000 fine or both.

· Your license can be suspended for 90 days on your first conviction, and you could be fined up to $500 and spend up to six months in prison.

· Anyone guilty of a second impaired-driving traffic offense will be required to install an ignition interlock device on their car before reinstating driving privileges.

· If you refuse a sobriety test, you can lose your license on the spot and have your car impounded.

Driving impaired, or riding with someone who is, isn’t worth the risk. The goal of zero deaths is attainable. Be smart – drive sober or get pulled over.
