JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri’s legislature began its special session Monday with a near empty House and Democrats bickering in the Senate. The House of Representatives held a short, poorly attended technical session Monday for bill introductions and then adjourned within minutes. Senate Democrats spent an hour discussing a list of grievances including the short notice about the special session’s starting schedule.
