This week on the #MoLeg Podcast, the crew is joined by none other than current Speaker Pro Tem and Speaker-Elect Elijah Haahr, who shares insight into the first day of session, as well as providing a preview of what next year’s first day might look like. Haahr also discusses some of the processes and strategies of the legislature, while also disclosing some of the best tips you might need when deciding on your holiday cards for next year. Haahr gets tricky in his responses to Becky’s Five Questions, but in the end, Becky turns the tables when Haahr is forced to figure out which legislator he would prefer to be stranded on an island with.
