Missouri lawmakers are coming back to Jefferson City for this year’s veto session and a special session called by Governor Mike Parson to permanently cut state income tax rates and to extend an agriculture tax cut bill to cover the next 6 years. Missouri 122nd district state representative Bill Hardwick of Waynesville says he is keeping an open mind about both measures.

The veto session will begin at noon on Wednesday. The special session is expected to start about an hour later with the whole process taking up to a week to complete.
