Politically Speaking: Is Eric Greitens Coming Back Into The Political Fray?

Feb 21, 2020

On the latest edition of the Politically Speaking weekly news roundup, St. Louis Public Radio’s team of political reporters talks about the re-emergence of former Gov. Eric Greitens and efforts in Jefferson City to pass a prescription drug monitoring program.

St. Louis Public Radio’s Julie O’Donoghue, Jaclyn Driscoll and Jason Rosenbaum discussed how a PDMP once again passed the Missouri House despite loud opposition from some Republicans. It faces a tough reception in the Missouri Senate, where the program aimed at stamping out opioid abuse has failed to advance previously.

Here’s what else was discussed on this week’s show:
