Jones, R-Eureka, spoke at Mid-America Wireless on his four-day, 20-city tour across Missouri.

He outlined two goals of the tour — to listen to the people of Missouri and to present the basic framework or plans that representatives plan to pursue during the upcoming legislative session.

“I’ve really been impressed with the participation the people of the state of Missouri have taken in the tour,” Jones said. “It shows how much folks are engaged in the political process like never before. They want to know what their state government is up to.”
