Today, Governor Mike Parson signed Executive Order 21-06 establishing the Show Me Strong Recovery Task Force. The purpose of the Show Me Strong Task Force is to study and develop recommendations on ways to support small businesses, including minority-owned businesses, throughout Missouri. The task force will also consider ways to better engage minority-owned businesses through existing economic development tools. The task force will submit a report of its findings and recommendations to the Governor by December 31, 2021, at which point the task force will be dissolved. In addition to establishing the Show Me Strong Recovery Task Force, Executive Order 21-06 also rescinds Executive Order 05-43.
