Lt. Governor Calls For Special Session On Senior Program Funding

Earlier this year, Missouri Governor Eric Grietens vetoed HCB 3, a bill that would have swept money from other state funds to provide care for approximately 8,000 low-income seniors and some disabled Missourians. Lt. Governor Mike Parson today called for a special session, to be held in conjunction with the scheduled veto session, that would consider new funding alternatives for senior programs. He also called on the Missouri Senate to discipline State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal for her comments relating to the assassination of the President.

Parson said creating a new plan for healthcare funding would help more than 8,000 Missourian who risk losing at-home care.
