ACTION ITEMS: WHAT CAN YOU DO?
1) SHARE THIS BLOG POST VIA EMAIL OR SOCIAL MEDIA.
2) PUT THE MISSOURI Department of Health and Senior Services ON NOTICE AND SEND COMMENTS.
YOU CAN COMMENT AGAINST THIS PROPOSED RULE. PREVENT IT FROM BEING ADOPTED AS A PERMANENT RULE!
YOU HAVE TO USE SNAIL MAIL TO ACCOMPLISH THIS...YOU HAVE TO MAIL A LETTER to the address below. (They don't make this easy to submit public comments.)
Address to submit comments: Adam Crumbliss, Director, Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Community and Public Health, PO Box 570, Jefferson City, MO 65102. No hearing is scheduled.
I am writing to oppose proposed amendment 19 CSR 20-20.050 introduced on May 1, 2020:
Sections (3) and (4) would give an unelected person the power to declare a statewide pandemic, close public, and private places indefinitely, including schools and churches, and limit the size of public and private gatherings. This violates my First Amendment rights to assemble and practice my religion and should not be allowed. Please withdraw this amendment.
Please, write a letter to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services ASAP telling them you oppose proposed amendment 19 CSR 0-20.050. Using clear simple language (such as sampled above), the more focused the better.
We have until May 31st to submit our comments via snail mail
3) DOUBLE DOWN. MAKE SURE YOUR LETTER IS ALSO SENT TO THE MEMBERS OF JCAR, YOUR SENATOR, and your STATE REPRESENTATIVE BY EMAIL.
McKinsey & Co
"Since Erdmann was hired, McKinsey has become a major player in Missouri state government. A key feature of their work appears to be secrecy. The state has a contract with McKinsey to manage a new human resources management system — apparently at no cost — but the survey of state employees that led to the program and the contract that created it is shrouded in secrecy.
So is McKinsey’s bid to study the state’s Medicaid program.
It is the only company that submitted redacted information to the state. Dozens and dozens of pages of the McKinsey bid are posted on the state’s bidding website, but blacked out entirely."
