So what’s going on with redistricting? At the moment, not a whole lot.
The House came into session late Wednesday night, but only for House Majority Leader Tim Jones, R-Eureka, to explain the situation over the next day or two.
A conference committee may go into session tonight to discuss a compromise map, which could in turn lead to debate and debate on the matter tomorrow.
In the meantime, neither chamber is in session. And as MissouriNet Tweeted, the Senate is coming back at 3 p.m. to decide whether it will meet tomorrow.
The above video - courtesy of House Communications - features Jones explaining the redistricting situation.
It’s been kind of a sleepy week in General Assembly news, mainly because the legislature is out of session for its Spring Break.
This video from House Communications takes a gander on what could be down the road when the legislature comes back.
House Communications posted video of a press conference with the Missouri House’s Republican and Democratic Caucus. The legislature, of course, is going on Spring Break for the next week.
Here’s a video of the House Republicans talking about the session so far. I’ll post the Democratic portion of the press conference next.
