JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri senators are returning to the state Capitol this week as they continue working through a special legislative session focused on state economic development.
Senators were meeting Monday, and Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer said the chamber plans to ask House members for a formal negotiating session over the economic development legislation. The House is not scheduled to meet Monday.
The Senate also plans to consider legislation abolishing Missouri's February 2012 presidential primary election. The primary remains on the books but lost much of its significance when the Missouri Republican Party decided to pick national convention delegates through a caucus process.
