All one has to do is a search for "Sen. Brian Nieves ALEC" to see where his priorities are. He's nothing more than a shill for ALEC and their priorities are not good for Missourians. It's sad to see so many of these extremists in the Missouri legislature. With this group at the helm, Missouri will continue to slip to the bottom of all the most undesirable lists. Sad day for Missouri.
