Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe will travel throughout the state to promote the first Buy Missouri Program Oct. 13-20.
As designated by the Legislature, Buy Missouri Week is designed to encourage residents to purchase Missouri-made products in support of those who create, grow, manufacture, distribute, promote and sell goods made in Missouri.
“As I travel throughout the state, I am always amazed at the ingenuity, initiative and creativity of Missourians in all manner of products,” said Kehoe.
“Buy Missouri Week is designed to promote products manufactured right here in Missouri. When we buy Missouri-made products, we support our friends, family and neighbors who work at and own these businesses,” he said. “I am working to grow the Buy Missouri initiative by continuing to recruit businesses, building an interactive, searchable website to help highlight Missouri businesses and cooperating with manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to make Missouri-made products more visible in the store.”
Gov. Mike Parson pioneered the Buy Missouri Initiative as lieutenant governor. While in the senate, Lt. Gov. Kehoe sponsored Senate Bill 891 establishing Buy Missouri Week. It was signed into law having received overwhelming bipartisan support in both legislative chambers.
