Representatives Judy Morgan and Brandon Ellington On MO Legislature And The Governor(s)
The last few years has seen a lot of obstructionism, finger pointing, political posturing and more in the MO Legislature. The slow motion car wreck of the legislature was blown up when the semi truck that was Governor Grietens plowed into both the Republican and Democratic cars making a mess into a disaster. The political stalemate and bickering has left, to some extent legislating to the people to do. The ballot initiative is being used to either overturn legislation or pass legislation the politicians won’t address.
Host Jeff Humfeld talks with 24th District Representative Judy Morgan and 22nd District Representative Brandon Ellington about this year’s legislative session, the bills that passed the bills that failed and the tale of two Governors. Oh, and your phone calls.
