Gov. Parson Again Rejects Call For Special Session On Gun Violence [View all]

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson reiterated Wednesday there will be no special legislative session on gun violence.

Parson called a special session to resolve a car sales tax issue to run concurrently with the stateís annual veto session. Itís set to begin on Sept. 9 and will cost taxpayers an estimated $16,000.

The Missouri Legislative Black Caucus asked the governor to address gun violence in Missouri, specifically in St. Louis and Kansas City. But Parson rejected the idea Tuesday and again Wednesday when he was asked about it at a press conference on government restructuring.

He said he is not convinced any change would happen even if he did add it to the schedule.
