From the 2014 Legislative Session
Sen. Lamping is a conservative thought leader in the Missouri State Senate. He is a thoughtful legislator whose intelligence and intent is unquestioned.
He has filibustered tax increases, fought to eliminate Common Core from Missouri, and championed institutional reform within the Missouri Legislature. Sen. Lamping has been a strong advocate for reining in government overreach.
As the senator from what is arguably the most politically liberal senate district represented by a Republican, he governs as one of the most conservative senators. He chose not to seek re-election for various reasons. Instead he opted for one meaningful term. Lamping is not a typical career politician. He has enjoyed significant personal and professional success outside the realm of public policy. His term expires at the end of 2014 and he is returning to the private sector and his wife and six children.
