Missouri Senate General Column October 2009

The 2010 legislative session may be more than two months away, but lawmakers continue to maintain a busy legislative schedule, including attending committee meetings that help them gather public input and research specific issues as they prepare for the upcoming legislative session.

Two of the three Missouri Senate 2020 Committees, which are assigned the task of developing long-range strategies in key policy areas, met this month.
