Missouri House Republicans will focus on labor, tort and education reform

With their supermajority intact and a Republican governor set to take over soon, Missouri House Republicans are laying out the their policy priorities for next year’s legislative session.

House Speaker Todd Richardson, R-Poplar Bluff, said his caucus will focus on issues including “right-to-work” legislation, tort reform and education reform in 2017.

Richardson indicated he wants to discuss labor reform during an upcoming meeting with Republican Governor-Elect Eric Greitens. Richardson said that he and Missouri Senate leaders will meet with Greitens to discuss the 2017 legislative session, which is less than two months away. Richardson did not say when or where that meeting will take place.

Republicans will control the House next year 117-46, matching the largest GOP majority in Missouri history.
