For the second time this week, the Missouri House has taken a day off from floor action.
And once again, it’s tied to the struggle between the House and Senate over congressional redistricting.
The GOP-controlled Missouri General Assembly has sent a few controversial bills to Democratic Governor Jay Nixon early enough for any veto to be overridden during the regular session.
They include the rollback on dog breeding regulations in Proposition B, and a bill that makes discrimination a “motivating factor," rather than a “contributing factor” in wrongful termination lawsuits.
The Missouri House has passed legislation to ban so-called “late term” abortions in the Show-Me State.
The bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks unless two doctors verify that a fetus is either not viable or is a medical threat to the mother.
