MO Lawmakers Return To Work

Missouri’s lawmakers are getting back to work today (1/8) in Jefferson City, but it’ll still be a couple of weeks before lawmakers really get into the swing of things.

Both chambers gaveled in at noon. Today’s work will be largely ceremonial with six new House members being sworn in.

Some of the priorities of the Republican-controlled legislature include additional funding for Missouri’s roads, bridges and rural internet broadband, sports wagering, expanding charter schools, workforce development and curbing Missouri’s violent crime problem.
