JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri legislature remains in session, but many committee meetings have been canceled because of forecasts for a major winter storm.
The House and Senate both were scheduled to meet in regular session Tuesday.
Many lawmakers arrived at the Capitol on Monday before the roads got too bad, so legislative leaders decided it made more sense to continue meeting than to send lawmakers back home.
Many committee meetings scheduled for Tuesday were called off. Lawmakers didn't want people to risk their safety driving to the Capitol or to miss out on testifying on legislation.
