Missouri Poverty Report 2022

If you would like to see statistics on poverty in Missouri, Missouri Community Action Network has it broken down very well in this document.

The US poverty rate is 12.8%. Missouri as a whole is sitting at 13%. In my district, Crawford and Dent counties at sitting at 16.3% and 15.1%, respectively. What are our legislators doing to combat these startling statistics? From what I can tell, it's a lot of culture wars and not much else.
