Here is the statement from the governor:

“Missouri is open for business. With strong conservative reforms like Freedom to Work, we’ve been able to help create more jobs and higher pay. Today, the unemployment rate in the state of Missouri is the lowest that it has been in seventeen years. In August, voters will have the opportunity to keep Missouri’s momentum going and help us win even more quality jobs.”
