A Caruthersville lawmaker is expressing concern over Governor Holden’s issuance of an executive order granting tens of thousands of state government workers the right to unionize. State Representative Denny Merideth – a Democrat – opposed the idea the last time the issue was voted on in the House. His mind has not changed. He says he’s concerned with the timing of the order and the fact many lawmakers were not consulted. Merideth says he has spoken with other rural lawmakers who look forward to speking with the Governor to determine whether the order was done for the people of Missouri or for special interests.
