Ron Richard to Post-Dispatch: If the governor calls another special session, we may ignore him

After two lengthy and costly special sessions of the Missouri Legislature, our elected officials appear to have had enough.

Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, said as much to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Richard suggested that even if Greitens does call another special session, the Senate could decide to ignore it.

“We’ll have a conference call with all the senators, and we’ll decide together if we decide to come back,” Richard told reporters.

For now, lawmakers are not scheduled to return to action until Sept. 13, which is the day set aside for them to consider overriding vetoes the governor has made to the bills they sent him in the spring.

Well, what do you know? Richard is growing some cajones.
