Jefferson City

(Jefferson City) The Missouri Legislature managed to pass the 49-billion-dollar state budget last week with only hours to spare.

The deadline was 6:00 p-m Friday.

The next move is up to Missouri Governor Mike Parson.

The spending plan includes additional funding for Missouri’s public colleges and universities.

It includes the addition of two dozen staff support positions for the state’s Public Defender System.
