Lawmakers have filed hundreds of bills already that touch on a variety of issues.

Last year, Parson's priorities included investment in infrastructure and the need to repair or replace many of the state's bridges. The legislature passed a $300 million bonding plan and set aside $50 million in general revenue for the repairs, with a focus on the Interstate 70 bridge near Rocheport.
