Amidst the latest call for a special session, this week the #MoLeg Podcast team sits down with two staffers from the House and the Senate. Hannah Beers from Sen. Ryan Silvey’s staff joins Ryan Clearwater, who works in the joint offices of Rep. Jay Barnes and Rep. Paul Curtman. We talk about the upcoming special session, how it was announced, and what the legislators’ constituents have to say about the latest special session surrounding the issue of abortion. Becky again brings the heat in “Five Questions”, where we find out what the greatest fears are for Beers and Clearwater.
