The second half of the 2014 Missouri legislative session is about to kick off, as lawmakers return to Jefferson City Monday. Webb City State Representative Charlie Davis tells News Talk KZRG how he feels the first half went.
"First part of the year is about like Spring Training in baseball. You don't get a whole lot accomplished, but actually have been spending your time getting ready for the second part."
Davis says he's expecting the big topics of debate to be the state budget and a law that would make enforcing certain federal gun laws illegal.
"This next week is budget week. We've got a $26-billion budget to be crafted, and we need to do whatever we can to make sure the budget's fair and that we fund everything as much as we can."
