What are our region's biggest legislative priorities?

DOWNLOAD THE RESULTS OF THE SURVEY!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our December 2019 survey.

Great Northwest Day at the CapitolSM exists as a cooperative effort by Northwest Missouri communities to unify and enhance our region’s image in Jefferson City and to pursue issues and legislation beneficial to the “Great Northwest.”

The goal of the Great Northwest Day Priorities Committee is to broaden the circle of input to present a strong united message to our legislators and government officials. The committee is gathering input from community leaders throughout the region via an online survey, as well as consulting with regional planning and advocacy groups such as the Missouri Coalition of Counties, Northwest Missouri Roundtable of Economic Development, Transportation Advisory Committees, Solid Waste Districts, Area Agency on Aging, Leadership Northwest Missouri, United Way, and others in healthcare, economic development, education, and quality of life. Feedback was reviewed against the criteria of:

  • Legislative impact,
  • Overarching regional impact,
  • Non-partisan perspective, and
  • Timeliness of concern.

The Great Northwest Day Steering Committee gave final review and approval before being shared with all state legislators, regional media, and other leaders throughout the region and state.

Our 2020 Priority Papers are posted here for you! We'll also share them on Great Northwest Day's website where you can learn more about the organization and register to join us in Jefferson City in February!
