A filibuster has erupted in Missouri's Senate over a proposal to rename Southwest Missouri State University. Darryl Franklin tells why this amendment is stirring up so much controversy in the Senate.
The proposal would rename Southwest Missouri State to Missouri State University.
The idea has encountered stiff opposition from the University of Missouri, But the bill's sponsor, Peter Kinder says not all U-M alumns oppose the change.
Kinder's plan is being opposed by the Senator who represents Columbia -- the location of the main campus of the University of Missouri.
