Governor Bob Holden’s vetoes of four budget bills that set up next week’s special legislative session came against the advice of at least one fellow Democrat with 40 years of experience in the Legislature. Senator Wayne Goode of St. Louis, the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, says he advised Holden not to veto the budget bills. Goode says there’s a danger Republicans could cut certain programs further since the Governor has complained the budget is still out of balance. Goode doesn’t expect a lot of change to come out of next week’s special session.
