Schatz talks transportation, Senate, and his bid for Pro Tem


This week, the #MoLeg Podcast crew sits down with Sen. Dave Schatz to discuss a number of topics that are on the minds of Missouri politicos right now, the chief of which might be transportation. Schatz and the rest of the 21st Century Missouri Transportation Task Force have been working to see what options might be found to fix the issues with Missouri’s roads and bridges, and he shares some insight into what he expects may come from it.
The Senator from Sullivan also talks about what we might see in the next legislative session and shares some news about where he intends to be when the current leadership departs from the Senate.
