JEFFERSON CITY — A special legislative session is still a possibility to provide more state money for low-income energy assistance.
Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder had urged the governor to call a special session after the Nov. 4 election to help Missourians struggling to pay their utility bills.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Matt Blunt said Wednesday that he has consulted with legislative leaders and is still considering whether to call a special session before his term ends in January.
If Blunt does not call lawmakers back to the Capitol, they likely would consider additional money for the Utilicare program as part of their regular session that begins in January.
