MO Republicans call for hearing on refugees

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – State Republican legislative leaders have called a joint hearing that will review programs that could be used to provide assistance for refugee resettlement in Missouri.

The House Budget Committee and Senate Appropriations Committee will conduct the hearing on Nov. 3 at 10 a.m.
House Speaker Todd Richardson says the hearing is necessary because Gov. Jay Nixon hasn’t come up with a plan or taken a stand on the Syrian refugee issue.

Earlier this week Nixon called on the federal government to ensure strong safeguards in screening refugees, but he did not say he would stop relocations as governors in several other states have pledged to do.

Some Republican leaders have called for a special session aimed at preventing the governor from allowing Syrian refugees to resettle in the state.
