Elijah was elected on the promise of helping Missourians and small businesses move forward in our struggling economy and he delivered on that promise. He spent his first year in the legislature working to ensure that the Second Injury Fund would be reformed to ensure its solvency for the years ahead.
In the 2014 session, Haahr cast the deciding vote to support the first income tax cut in 80 years in Missouri. Elijah also was named the 2014 Freshman Legislator of the Year Award for Economic Development and Job Creation issues based upon his legislative record.
Haahr believes in a smaller, more efficient government. He fights to lighten the tax burden on employers and individuals, to cut unnecessary spending, and to roll back unnecessary regulations that prevent our Missouri businesses from growing.
