(MISSOURINET) –  In the Missouri House, there were Republicans and Democrats alike who did not like the agriculture bill and how it was fast-tracked. The final vote was 94-31 plus 11 voting present and 19 absent

Peter Merideth represents St. Louis City.

The bill gives tax breaks to urban farms, which satisfied many Democrats, except for Ferguson Representative Raychel Proudie (Proud-ee)

Proudie had a list of urban farms throughout the state that are non-profits.

The governor promised Wednesday that he would sign the bill.
