Missouri Lawmakers Return to Work after Spring Recess

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - There was a lot of talk as Missouri lawmakers convened this winter about the need to overhaul Missouri's health care program for the poor.

So far, there hasn't been much action.

At the Legislature's annual spring break, the much-touted Medicaid overhaul has yet to be considered in the House or Senate.

But lawmakers are continuing to talk about it, and Republican leaders vow it's still a priority for the final eight weeks of the session. Lawmakers resume work today.
