Missouri Special Session To Begin Next Week

Chamber Reno

The Missouri General Assembly will begin its special session on Wednesday, September 14, according to an updated schedule. This week, Governor Mike Parson rejected a request by a group of lawmakers wanting to add recreational marijuana legislation to the special session agenda. Voters will see recreational marijuana use for adults on the November ballot. During the special session, the governor wants lawmakers to pass a $700 million permanent income tax cut and extend tax credit programs for agriculture. The House chambers are currently undergoing renovations. The upgrades include new voting boards, carpet, and wiring. The renovations were expected to be finished by veto session, which is the same day the special session begins, but are now on hold due to shipping delays. Folding tables and plastic chairs have been brought in for Representatives to use during the special session.
