“Fiscal responsibility has always been critically important to our administration, and this month’s General Revenue Report is a reflection of Missouri’s strong fiscal health, growing economy, and ability to live within our means,” Governor Mike Parson said. “We put a major focus on investing in workforce development and infrastructure this year, and the results have been historic. We also proposed and passed a budget that for the first time in over a decade left over $100 million on the bottom line. With next year just around the corner, we will continue to invest in these areas, move our economy forward, and make sure we are financially prepared for the unexpected.”
