Missouri Senate Postpones Special Session After Coronavirus Outbreak

The Missouri Senate is postponing its portion of the special legislative session related to COVID-19 liability and federal funding because of positive coronavirus cases in the chamber.

Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, tweeted on Monday that the decision is “in the best interest of protecting members, staff, and the public.”

Minority Leader John Rizzo, D-Independence, said that on top of the special legislative session, the Senate was supposed to hold orientation for new members, which also has been postponed.

“Those staffers usually conduct the orientation to teach the senators how and when to file bills, go through their office budget,” Rizzo said. “They could not do that because, I understand, that they had people that work in those departments test positive or have been around people that have.”

1. Why am I not surprised? Republicans have seen CV cases spike in the Spfd, KCMO, and STL areas.

Did they not see what's happening? Our moronic governor is worthless and should be thrown out of office/impeached, refused to embrace masks etc. and still is idiotically handling the corona virus. Hospitals are close to full capacity too. No national guard call ups, nothing from our missing in action governor.

2. I wish Governor Goober would just retire to whatever hellhole he came from

I think he lives in Polk County, but don't hold me to that. He's useless at best, dangerous at worst.
