Sen. McCaskill plans listening tour for Missouri seniors
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Missouri's U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill will travel the state this week to hear about the concerns of senior citizens in Missouri on retirement, fraud and healthy living.
McCaskill will hold eight events on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to discuss the upcoming priorities in Congress that would affect seniors.
McCaskill says she wants to hear directly from seniors about how Congress can live up to promises made to older Americans, especially in regards to health and retirement.
The Democrat is the ranking member of the Senate Special Committee on Aging, which she says has allowed her to investigate scams targeting seniors, retirement security issues and concerns about Alzheimer's disease.
Events will be held in St. Louis, Macon, Columbia, Chillicothe, Kansas City, Branson, Springfield and Farmington.
