Rep. Robert Ross joins the #MoLeg Podcast this week to discuss the work being done on the state budget, as well as his work as the chairman of the Committee on Professional Registration and Licensing. Ross also discusses one of the hot topics this week, concerning Rep. Bill Lant and NAACP Rod Chapel’s testimony during a committee hearing. Missouri Times publisher Scott Faughn explains why he just can’t see past the metal detectors and guards in the Capitol, while co-host Becky Lohmann stumps the representative in this week’s “Five Questions”.
