A departing state lawmaker has ideas on what priorities the legislature should focus on in the upcoming session.

Term-limited Republican Senator Brian Munzlinger from Williamstown is a lifelong farmer who thinks the agriculture community has a specific need.

Munzlinger tells Missourinet that he thinks the expansion of rural broadband is a key need in the agriculture community.

His expansive Senate district includes a major portion of Missouri’s farmland in the northern and northeast parts of the state.
