The Governor has until today to sign or veto legislation passed during the 2017 State Legislative session. On the last day of the 2017 fiscal year, June 30, Governor Greitens signed the budget to begin the Fiscal Year 2018, July 1.
Governor Greitens called his first Extraordinary Session to consider legislation that would allow the Public Service Commission to negotiate and approve lower electric rates for a longer contract for manufacturers using a lot of electricity. This legislation is necessary to attract a company to build a steel mill in New Madrid Missouri.
After weeks of filibusters, extreme infighting among Republicans, and a couple days grinding to a halt, the legislature passed 49 pieces of legislation plus the Budget bills. A record low.
