The 97th Missouri General Assembly recently came to a close in Jefferson City, Mo. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch called it a “conflict-ridden Missouri legislative session” in which a Republican-majority legislature passed several bills that Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon could still veto.

With the conclusion of the annual session, two University of Missouri–St. Louis political scientists weighed in on the year in state politics and discussed what the future might hold. Terry Jones, professor of political science, provided analysis on “Stay Tuned” on KETC (Channel 9) and “St. Louis on the Air” on St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU. Dave Robertson, Curators’ Teaching Professor of Political Science, was quoted by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and in an Associated Press article that ran in dozens of newspapers and websites, including San Francisco Chronicle and The Kansas City (Mo.) Star.
