Lawmakers to start final week
Monday, May 14, 2012
Missouri’s Constitution gives them no choice.
Their “drop-dead” deadline is coming, whether they wish to or not — at 6 p.m. Friday, Missouri lawmakers must end this year’s legislative session.
The House begins its last week of work at 4 p.m. today.
The Senate will resume an hour earlier.
