House Speaker Catherine Hanaway of Warson Woods says the Legislature will do all it can to complete its work quickly during the upcoming special session of the General Assembly, but she’s uncertain as to the chances for success. Governor Bob Holden is insisting that a proposal for tax increases be sent to Missouri voters. But, Hanaway says there doesn’t appear to be much support for that idea. She says that while there might be some tinkering with the four budget bills vetoed by the Governor, it’s likely the bills he gets back will be very similar to those he rejected. The special session begins at noon on Monday.
