|Intro:||Missouri's Speaker of the House says he doesn't know why an FBI agent would question one of his colleagues.|
Wrap: Republican Ron Richard says he has no clue why the FBI would ask fellow Representative Tim Jones why a certain tax bill didn't move through the legislature.
|Description: "No, I have no idea. I mean there's nothing nefarious going on. I have no idea. It was just a conversation I guess but I have no indication of what's going on with that."|
An FBI agent asked Jones about a city sales tax bill he sponsored with Richard.
Richard said he never assigned the bill to a committee because not enough lawmakers supported it.
