More:  In 2009, Engler attracted attention by proposing, then withdrawing a bill to make littering a capital offense. In a short speech on the Senate floor, he referred to constituents who litter as "white trash" and "dumb rednecks." When criticized for these remarks, Engler said, "the only ones I've called names are the ones doing it. If they are offended, good.” 

On July 9, 2009, Engler Twittered: The Tour of Missouri is HUGE for Missouri. A $3 mil investment yields nearly $30 mil in revenue.
