The Missouri House of Representatives has a new top budget man, who says he can work with the former top budget man. Representative Allen Icet of Wildwood has served as Vice Chairman of the Budget Committee under Representative Brad Lager of Maryville. Lager has been removed as Chairman by Speaker Rod Jetton, but will remain on the Budget Committee. Icet says he has yet to make an assessment of the budget the Legislature will draft next year. He says he has been meeting with members of the House staff to get a handle on state revenue growth as well as the growth in expenses.
