Former Republican State Rep. Kevin Wilson sums up the disappoint this special session has been so far.
So the Missouri General Assembly has been in special session now for several weeks and what do they have to show for it? Well, not much. If you were to look up the words “special” and “extraordinary” in a thesaurus you would find alternatives like “strange,” “unusual,” “bizarre” and “weird” to name a few. I think that those would be pretty fitting to describe what has gone on in Jefferson City over the past month or so.
The General Assembly was called into special session with high hopes that the state of Missouri would show the rest of the country that we were serious about job creation. Instead, we have given the nation a lesson in how not to get things done.
