(LISTEN): U.S. Rep. Eric Burlison (R-Springfield) discusses school choice legislation and state highway bill on “Wake Up Mid-Missouri”

U.S. Rep. Eric Burlison (R-Springfield) is not a fan of legislation from State Rep. Don Mayhew (R-Crocker) that would change the name of I-70 in Missouri to I-44 and would change the name of I-44 in Missouri to I-70. Congressman Burlison joined us live on 939 the Eagle’s “Wake Up Mid-Missouri.” He also discussed legislation he’s introduced called the Achieving Choice in Education Act. It would double the contribution limit on K-12 expenses with 529 accounts from $10,000 to $20,000 a year. Congressman Burlison says school choice makes educational institutions more accountable and responsive to families. He also tells listeners that he felt persecuted in public schools in the 1980s and 1990s, citing his experience in an art class. Critics of school choice say it takes money away from public schools:

  1. The citizens around Crocker must be so proud they elected such an IDIOT! There is NO SANE REASON to switch these interstates! Did him getting elected cause this STUPIDITY? HE NEEDS to be recalled if that’s the best legislation he can come up with! He should be 100% ashamed of himself!
