• New Laws


    We took the kids to the zoo on Saturday.  It is one of the gems of the St. Louis area.  As I was there, it occurred to me that a Merry-Go-Round is a good way to describe the legislative session.   Bad bills continue to be reintroduced.  Good bills continue to spin around in orbit.  Some are so absorbed in the music and waving to the spectators that they hardly notice that another year has passed.  Usually, very little is accomplished because government is inclined to be inefficient.  However, this year was the first time in Missouri the Republicans had a Super-Majority in both the House and the Senate.  That means a veto-proof number of legislators should be able to accomplish whatever the leadership directs to happen.
