AP Ponders A Session of "No"

With about 24 hours left in the legislative session, Missouri's wire service notes that major initiatives are currently stalled.
Lawmakers have been unable to reach agreements on large bills dealing with economic development, health care and abortion.
  • Senators are stuck over whether to limit the amount of tax credits that can be approved to renovate old buildings.
  • Legislators are still wrestling with language that would expand Missouri's 24-hour informed consent law to have an abortion.
  • Disagreements remain on a proposed expansion of healthcare.
Session ends 6 p.m. Friday
