Gov. Mike Parson announced this week he is calling for a special session of the Missouri general assembly to discuss legislative bills related to science education and drug courts.
The session will be concurrent with the annual “veto” session, in which legislators may vote to override a governor’s veto ruling for any bills from the traditional January-May session.
In a statement announcing the decision, the governor indicated he did not oppose new policy promoting drug courts or robust computer-science education in high schools, but he hoped legislators would, “come up with a more narrowly defined focus” on those policies.
The session will take place the week of Sept. 10-14.
