The House and Senate are still at a stalemate as to what to do with the jobs bill that is the cornerstone of the special legislative session, and the clock is ticking.
Though the House has voted to ask the Senate to go to conference committee on the jobs bill, and was able to perfect two resolutions, leadership is dissatisfied with the overall outcome of the special session. Democratic Leader Mike Talboy says he is not optimistic the Senate will want to conference.
House Speaker Steven Tilley says if there’s no jobs legislation passed, the 9 percent of Missourians who are unemployed will be disappointed.
The Senate meets Tuesday and could decide then if there will be a conference. The Special Session must end November 5, according to state law.
