The Media’s Take on the Missouri Legislature 2012
Mike Ferguson — formerly of the Eagle in Columbia, currently director of
Missouri News Horizon — spoke on the topic of the 2012 Missouri
Legislative Session at the most recent Show-Me Forum in Columbia, MO.
The speaker gave a media perspective on what did and did not happen, and
why. One focus of the talk was the republicans, who control the
legislature, not wishing to rock the boat during an election year, and
thus being unwilling to discuss or move forward on important issues to
the state, such as roads, education, and tax credits.
