Missouri General Assembly to Convene Special Legislative Session
Missouri lawmakers will return to work today as the General Assembly convenes a special legislative session.
Following the May 12 adjournment of the regular session, Gov. Eric Greitens hinted a special session was imminent and called for the session just two weeks later. The special session will focus on bringing jobs and an economic boost to the state.
Lawmakers will consider legislation to attract a steel plant and an aluminum smelter to locate there in exchange for lower utility rates.
The session has no target end date and is expected to cost taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per week.
