Politically Speaking: Colona On Gun Nullification, Anti-Discrimination Laws And More

Missouri Rep. Mike Colona, D-St. Louis
Jason Rosenbaum, St. Louis Beacon.

Every week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.

On this week's show: Missouri Representative Mike Colona joins us to discuss the income tax bill's merits and chances of becoming law, as well as the nationally-covered gun nullification bill. We also discuss the Senate's movement on legislation to add sexual orientation and gender identity to anti-discrimination laws, and Colona shares a story of what it's like to be a gay man in a conservative legislature.
