Jefferson City, Missouri – While many people in our nation are supportive of the troops, there are some lawmakers in Missouri that are putting pen to paper to show their support.
Near military bases there are often groups of businesses that ply their trade, and they are not always the most honest of places. Places such as Payday Loan Lenders prey on military personnel and their families, but not so much now in Missouri.
In a new set of bills, Missouri House Democrats filed bills to raise the pay of Military State Workers and also to block the actions of Payday Lenders that prey on military families.
Nearly $3.8 million is believed to be lost by workers who report for military service. In legislation that is being backed by Stephen Webber D-Columbia, workers for the state will keep their salaries will called to active duty for their country.
As for payday lenders, every year to these types of businesses flourish in Missouri alone, and they charge high fees and unfair rates, causing the Missouri legislature to step up to help close the door on these businesses.
