Meeting in a special legislative session called by the governor, the House of Representatives on Aug. 23 approved economic development legislation to provide select businesses with more than $66 million a year in taxpayer subsidies. The House also approved a bill to allow the Missouri Department of Transportation to finalize a contract to repair 800 of the state’s worst bridges over the next five years.

During debate on both bills, majority Republicans refused to allow consider any changes not pre-approved by Gov. Matt Blunt. Both measures now head to the Senate. The special session is expected to wrap up by Aug. 31 with an estimated cost to taxpayers of up to $200,000.
