A Southwest Missouri senator is one of just three freshmen senators named to chair a state committee this session.
Senator Bill White has been announced as the chair of the Senate committee on Veterans and Military Affairs. White, a retired Marine, began his first term in the Senate this year.
White says he’s looking forward to crafting legislation beneficial to Missouri’s veterans, and working with his counterpart in the State House to make Missouri the most veteran friendly state in the nation. White was appointed to a total of seven committees, including the judiciary and civil and criminal committees.
