The Missouri Legislative session will end in two weeks and many issues remain unsolved. “St. Louis Public Radio” statehouse reporter Marshall Griffin is following the progress. He joined “St. Louis on the Air” host Don Marsh Tuesday with updates.

Much of the session revolved around improving community policing.

Here is a list of legislative topics discussed during the interview:

  • A municipal court reform bill that will limit the revenue municipalities can receive from traffic fines, with percentage caps ranging from 10 to as much as 20 percent.
  • A police reform bill which addresses police use of deadly force.
  • A bill requiring the use of body cameras by police
  • Education reform bill
  • Possible veto overrides for the state budget
