  • Missouri House of Representatives Speaker Tim Jones has announced the formation of the Interim Committee on Missouri Military Impact and Sustainability. State Rep. Steve Lynch, who represents most of Fort Leonard Wood, is one of the member selected by the Speaker to serve on the committee.
    The committee will explore the military as a part of the community fabric surrounding Fort Leonard Wood, Whiteman Air Force Base, and other areas in Missouri.  
    Also, in light of the recent revelations concerning the Veterans Health Administration, the committee intends to gather information about the treatment of Missouri veterans by the VHA to be included in the final report and shared with our congressional delegation.
     “This is a real opportunity to examine in detail the commitment of Missouri communities to the military mission and lifestyle.  We are quite concerned with the treatment our veterans are receiving from the Veterans Health Administration and our obligation to them after they have served our country.  Missouri is a veteran-friendly state and we wish to keep this environment intact and growing.”
    The committee will consist of Reps. Charlie Davis, R, Webb City, as chairman, and Dean Dohrman, R - La Monte, as vice chairman.  Other members consist of Reps. Denny Hoskins, R-Warrensburg; Glen Kolkmeyer, R-Odessa; Elaine Gannon, R-De Soto; Pat Conway, D-St. Joseph; Rochelle Walton Gray, D-Black Jack; and T.J. McKenna, D-Festus.
    Scheduled meetings are:
    St. Robert Hampton Inn August 18 from noon until 3 PM; and
    Warrensburg on September 23 from noon until 3 PM.
