Discussion: What To Expect During Missouri's 2013 Veto Session
Missouri lawmakers will convene Wednesday for their annual veto session. Governor Jay Nixon vetoed 29 bills this year, including at least two bills that have been the subject of much campaigning and debate. Add in a Republican-led General Assembly, and this year's veto session has the potential to be of greater consequence than most.
St. Louis Public Radio's Marshall Griffin and Chris McDaniel have been covering the veto session, and gave host Don Marsh an overview of what to expect this year.
