Parson Veto Will Stand

Governor Parson’s legislative vetoes will stand after a power struggle between some Missouri Senate Republicans and Conservative Caucus members. During the Missouri Legislature’s annual veto session Wednesday, Senate Republicans bickered for hours over a procedural matter. Ash Grove Senator Mike Moon attempted to make the unusual move of bringing up a bill sponsored by another Senator about a sales tax refund. Majority Floor Leader Caleb Rowden of Columbia said taking control of another Senator’s bill is a problem.

 

Another bill the Missouri Legislature did not overturn would have designated 300-thousand-dollars for a program designed to fight an increase in child sex abuse in eastern Missouri’s Lincoln County.
