General Assembly

  • Missouri’s first Asian American woman elected to the General Assembly says it hasn’t always been easy to serve. State Rep. Emily Weber, from Kansas City, reflects on race and equity in Missouri government, and the rest of this year’s legislative agenda.
  • Missouri’s Congressional candidates don't actually know what their district or voters will look like, because the General Assembly has failed to adopt a Congressional map. And there's just months left before the August primary. Plus, more than 80% of the western Great Plains is in a drought.
  • Kansas' congressional districts are up in the air after Gov. Laura Kelly vetoed a redistricting plan from GOP lawmakers. Meanwhile, conservative legislators in Missouri shot down Gov. Mike Parson's nomination for health director over his support for vaccinations.
