A top legislative leader says the special session Governor Carnahan has called for Monday CAN be completed within a week. Tristin Yeager reports from the state capital.
The special legislative session called by Governor Carnahan is scheduled to focus on two primary issues -- the Branson Tourism Tax and portions of the Economic Development Bill previously vetoed by Carnahan. Governor Carnahan's chief spokesman, Chris Sifford, provides details on the agenda:
If the legislative agenda doesn't change, a smooth week is expected. On the other hand, if controversial proposals like partial birth abortion are added to the agenda, one week may not be enough.
