One of the main issues handled each legislative session of the Missouri General Assembly is approving the budget for the next fiscal year. The legislature sent a 26.4 billion dollar budget for fiscal year 2015 to Governor Jay Nixon's desk.
State Representative, Mike Thomson of Maryville, says he was pleased with how education will be funded in upcoming year.
One of the more controversial issues passed this year was the tax cut bill which the legislator's overrode Governor Nixon's veto. Thomson says small business in northwest Missouri should benefit should provisions from the bill take affect.
Thomson and State Senator Brad Lager, a Republican from Savannah, were honored this morning during a legislative breakfast sponsored by the Maryville Chamber of Commerce.
