JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri General Assembly has officially come to a close.
House and Senate leaders gaveled the annual session to an end Thursday in compliance with the adjournment date set in the Missouri Constitution.
The actual work ended two weeks ago. The constitution prohibited lawmakers from passing any legislation after May 17, but allowed additional time for bills to be printed and prepared for delivery to the governor.
On Thursday, the House speaker and Senate president pro tem signed bills as a verification that they had passed.
Gov. Jay Nixon now has until mid-July to decide whether to sign those bills into law or veto them.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says an income-tax cut bill passed by the Legislature also could levy taxes on prescription drugs.
Nixon released a written statement Thursday saying the legislation would repeal an existing sales tax exemption on prescriptions, which could cost consumers $200 million annually.
The Democratic governor has previously indicated that he is likely to veto the bill. His previous statements pointed to the eventual loss of hundreds of millions of dollars for state services as a result of the income tax cut.
The legislation was handled by Republican Sen. Will Kraus, of Lee's Summit. Kraus said Thursday that he did not intend to tax prescription drugs. If that's the case, he says Nixon should sign the bill and call a special session so lawmakers can fix it.
