JEFFERSON CITY, MO (Missourinet) It’s spring break for the Missouri Legislature but there’s still plenty that needs to be accomplished in the last eight weeks of the session. Aside from Congressional redistricting, and other conspicuous issues, election changes could be ahead.

Senator Rick Brattin of Harrisonville sponsors Senate Bill 695.  It would modify some election rules.

A different measure – House Bill 1878 – is voter ID legislation that’s awaiting a committee assignment before it can be addressed in the full Missouri Senate.

Senator Steven Roberts of St. Louis says election bills are not just on the table in Jefferson City, they’re also an issue in Washington.

The session will resume on Monday.
