Wright among bipartisan group pushing for special session
Rep. Mark Wright, R-Springfield, was one of seven legislators, four Republicans and three Democrats, who have gone on record calling for a special session to revive the Ticket to Work program.
The effort came today during a meeting with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board.
The Ticket to Work program, which was eliminated during the 2005 Medicaid cuts, provides assistants to help the disabled to help them hold regular jobs.
