Silver Haired Legislature sets priorities

Silver Haired Legislature sets priorities

September 22nd, 2011 in News

After their annual three-day mock legislative session at the Capitol, the Silver Haired Legislature knows what it wants Missouri's "official" lawmakers to do next year.

Every year, the SHL mock legislature's meeting ends with the selection of a "Top 5" list of issues they want to see become state laws.

This year's list, adopted Wednesday, includes:

• Restore, then increase, funding for the AAA meals program, including meals served at senior centers and the "Meals On Wheels" efforts that deliver lunch to seniors who are homebound.
