JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Rep. Randy Asbury, R-Higbee, will serve on a newly-formed interim committee charged with developing policy solutions that will help promote and strengthen healthy Missouri families. Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley, R-Perryville, selected Asbury to serve as a member of the House Interim Committee on Strengthening Missouri Families. Tilley said he formed the committee because he believes a strong family unit is the key to helping Missourians reach their potential.
“We can’t stand idly by and allow the family structure to be weakened to the point that most marriages have no chance for success,” said Tilley, who noted that more than half of all marriages end in divorce and that Missouri’s divorce rate has consistently been higher than the national average.“We have to recognize that families represent the essential building blocks for our communities and our state, and that without strong families, we will never be able to reach our potential.”
“I look forward to working with the committee to take a close look at our existing policies to determine if and how they can be improved to facilitate a stronger family unit,” said Asbury. “Strong families are essential to the future of Missouri and especially to the education of our children. Strong, healthy families provide the foundation for thriving communities, states and our nation.” The committee will hold a series of hearings around the state in the coming months.
