Another filibuster in the Missouri Senate may be brewing, this time over redistricting.
Majority Floor Leader Tom Dempsey (R, St. Charles) says he expects fellow GOP Senator Bill Stouffer (R, Napton) to try and block the redistricting map passed this week by the House, and possibly the Senate version as well.
Four Missouri State Senators have ended their filibuster of legislation to draw down $105 million in extended federal unemployment benefits.
On Wednesday, the four senators, led by Jim Lembke (R, Lemay), had offered to end their filibuster if Governor Jay Nixon (D) would reject $300 million in federal stimulus funds.
