Technology boosts economy

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

The recent expansion of the 3G broadband wireless network into this area is phenomenal. Now I can share videos and photos with friends, watch a movie or check the latest sports scores faster than ever. Investment in technology will help drive economic growth and ensure that Missouri has the necessary infrastructure for commerce, quality of life and education.

The state legislature plays a very important role in setting policy that makes Missouri attractive to new business and helping existing businesses expand. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of state Sen. Jason Crowell and state Rep. Clint Tracy, this area of Missouri is reaping the benefits of good public policy.
