Area lawmaker elected to Majority Caucus chair


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - A Missouri state senator representing Buchanan County has been elected to Majority Caucus chair.

State Sen. Tony Luetkemeyer, who has served the past two legislative sessions as Majority Whip, looks to reshape the Republican agenda as Majority Caucus chair in 2023.

Luetkemeyer says their could focus could be on banning Transgender athletes from women's sports, keeping critical race theory out of the classroom, and reforming the state's initiative petition process.

He was elected during a caucus retreat earlier this month and is replacing State Sen. Dan Hegeman who is leaving the legislature due to term limits.
