A late night session at the State Capitol in Jefferson City produces results as the Missouri House passes a prescription drug plan for senior citizens, finalizes a bill to exempt taxpayers from having to pay state tax on the federal rebates, and makes changes to the controversial Livestock Marketing Law. The drug plan will provide for up to 60 percent of seniors’ prescription drug costs, to a maximum of $5,000. The tax plan calls for a one time exemption for Missouri taxpayers. The change in the Livestock Marketing Law will make it unlawful for any packer to engage in or use any unfair, unjustly discriminatory, or deceptive practice or device. The House versions of these bills are different from the Senate versions. The differences will be ironed-out during House-Senate conference committees this week.
