This week on the #MoLeg Podcast, Stinson Leonard Street attorney Chuck Hatfield joins Rachael and Ben to talk about the latest events from the seat of Missouri’s power. The team talks about the latest developments following the State Board of Education vote, including a couple of lawsuits that have risen from the past week’s events. They also discuss the recent Missouri Housing Development Commission vote to draft a proposal to not fund tax credits in the coming year, as well as the ongoing question of where the Attorney General really lives and what the courts might have to say. Hatfield finishes by giving a quick history lesson to the crew and some insight into the initiative petition process.
