The Senate Minute for March 31: SB 623 and SB 786

Jefferson City — Missouri senators give first-round approval to Senate Bill 623, which — upon voter approval — would raise the state’s gas tax from 17- to 22.9 cents per gallon, and Senate Bill 786, which would modify the law relating to the prosecution of election offenses. Both measures still need another positive vote before they could move to the Missouri House of Representatives for similar consideration. We’ve included actualities from Sen. Doug Libla, R-Poplar Bluff, and Sen. Scott Sifton, D-Affton, in this feature report narrated by Senate Communications Officer Dean Morgan.
