Summer break for Missouri legislators started a month ago today. The 2019 legislative session was a dense one, and in that last week, they finished a bridge-repair bonding plan, completed language for the HB 126 abortion bill, and completed a proposal to establish term limits for statewide officials, among other things. In this episode of Going Public, we speak with State Rep.
