Missouri Legislature Meets To Discuss Veto Overrides

The Missouri Legislature returns to the state Capitol Wednesday to decide whether to overturn any of the governor’s vetoes on policy or budget bills passed this year. Governor Mike Parson vetoed more than 555-million dollars in the 53-billion dollar state budget, including 15-million dollars to help crime victims, 6.8-million in rural health behavioral crisis center expansions, and five-million dollars for autism research.

Parson vetoed a wide-ranging crime package that would bolster penalties for assault on a law enforcement animal and would elevate the charges for reckless discharge of a firearm within city limits.
