Missouri General Assembly Hits Pause Button on Session Over Coronavirus Concerns

Capitol Landscape
Last week, the Missouri Senate recessed a week ahead of its regularly scheduled spring break over concerns related to the spread of coronavirus. This week, the Missouri House deferred voting on the FY 2021 state budget due to concerns that state revenues will fall short of projections that were the basis for appropriation bills considered and passed by the House Budget Committee earlier this week. These bills now sit on the House calendar for debate and it is unclear when the House will take them up, as the House adjourned this week for spring break with no clear return date set.
