State lawmakers conclude their work during the two-week special session by approving a resolution calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to not implement a proposed “Spring Rise” on the Missouri River. Representative Peter Myers of Sikeston says releasing additional water in the Spring is counter to the purpose of Missouri River navigational system.

Governor Matt Blunt has already signed all the bills from this year’s special session.
