2010 National Kemp Legislative Award

At the 2010 National LICA Winter Convention, Missouri LICA was awarded the first-ever National LICA Kemp Legislative Award. John Peterson, National LICA Legislative Liaison, established the award to recognize LICA chapters who’s legislative efforts have made a difference. Missouri LICA was recognized for its efforts to establish, renew, and monitor the 1/10th Cent Soil, Water, and State Parks Sales Tax which has provided thousands of Missouri landowners cost-share opportunities related to the preservation of Missouri’s soil and water.
