Honoring Slain Officers

I was honored to present SBs 999 & 1000 today to name parts of I-70 after Sergeant Benjamin Booth and Sheriff Roger I Wilson. Booth was the first member of the Highway Patrol killed in the line of duty along w/ Boone County Sheriff Wilson. It was very humbling to be joined by members of both families, including former Governor Roger Wilson, as well as Colonel Karsten who leads the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Giving honor to these heroes will be a highlight of my year and my legislative career.‬
