Governor Matt Blunt’s end of session news conference focused on the accomplishments of the General Assembly – accomplishments the Governor had said were imperative for Missouri’s future well being. He praised the Legislature for dealing with litigation reform and workers’ compensation reform. And, he spoke of how necessary cuts were made to pay for his top priority – education. Senate Democratic Leader Maida Coleman of St. Louis doesn’t agree with Blunt’s glowing assessment She says the education problem has not been solved, because it is not going to be funded. And, she’s angry over what she sees as a pro-business, anti-consumer agenda. Coleman and Democratic House Leader Jeff Harris of Columbia sum up this session as one of broken promises.
