Senator Roy Blunt visits Boys and Girls Club in Joplin

Missouri Senator Roy Blunt visits the Boy's and Girl's Club of Joplin to read and help serve lunch to kids.

Blunt, who is a big supporter of the Summer And Nutrition Programs for Kids, spent the morning helping out with activities. Last summer, Senator Blunt, and Arkansas Senator John Boozman sponsored legislation to extend the Backpack Program for Kids into the summer. Blunt, who also voted in favor of the new tax bill, says families will see a big tax cut in 2018.

"From the work you do start January 1, you're going to have a more friendly tax treatment. If you're a family of 4 and say your total family income is say $72 thousand dollars you're going to be paying a couple thousand dollars less in taxes next year than you paid this year,” says Roy Blunt.
