Missouri lawmakers wrap up 2013 legislative session

Missouri’s 2013 legislative session has come to an end.

The House and Senate each wrapped up their work Friday shortly after 6 p.m. – a few minutes after the mandatory adjournment time set by the Missouri Constitution.

The session included the passage of an income tax cut for individuals and businesses that is projected to eventually reduce state revenues by $700 million. Other measures passed by the Republican-led Legislature include a $25 billion budget and a funding fix for an insolvent state program for disabled workers.

Republican lawmakers also approved numerous pro-gun measures this year, as well as restrictions on labor unions.

Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon now will have several weeks to decide whether to sign or veto the bills.
