Missouri has a $27 billion spending plan for the new fiscal year now that Gov. Eric Greitens has added his signature to slew of appropriations bills that make up the state budget. But the governor has yet to sign into law or veto more than two dozen other bills.
Among the bills left unsigned include:
- A bill that would exempt delivery charges from sales tax
- A bill that stabilizes statutory population designations, meaning laws that affect cities of a certain size will remain in effect even if a city shrinks or grows
- The creation of more adult education opportunities, including four adult high schools
- A bill that would allow banks and trust companies to buy property for the purpose of leasing to public entities such as schools or hospitals
Greitens has until July 14 to sign the bills into law or veto them. Bills left without a veto or signature automatically become law.
