JEFFERSON CITY — Several Missouri lawmakers are returning to Jefferson City for meetings at the state Capitol.

A special House committee on government contracting scheduled a hearing Tuesday on fee offices, where Missouri motorists renew driver's licenses and vehicle registrations. Contracts to run the offices are awarded through a bidding process.

A committee focusing on wages for state employees also was scheduled to meet Tuesday.

Republican legislative leaders are preparing for the 2013 session, in which they will hold veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate.
