Numerous proposals to redraw Missouri’s State House and Senate district maps were delivered today to a six-judge panel in Jefferson City.

The interested parties include several current and former lawmakers from both political parties.  A coalition of St. Louis-area senators pitched a map that's designed to prevent the region from losing a State Senate seat.  Republican Eric Schmitt of Glendale says the metro area has not lost enough population to justify losing a Senate district.

Governor Jay Nixon (D) is planning to host a meeting next week with Missouri lawmakers to broker an agreement on an economic development bill.

The State House and Senate adjourned in May without passing legislation that would have created several new tax breaks, among them a proposal that would have provided $360 million in incentives to transform Lambert Airport in St. Louis into an international air cargo hub.
