State Capital Bureau

Some landmark changes today/Thursday in the leadership of the Missouri legislature. Lee McGuire has more from Jefferson City.

For the first time in more than 30 years, the St. Louis metro area will have no representative in next session's top legislative leadership.

In the race for Senate majority leader, Kansas City area Representative Ronnie DePasco defeated St. Louis County representative Wayne Goode.

But DePasco says that doesn't take St. Louis out of the loop:

In another Democratic change, Wayne Crump will replace Gracia Backer as House majority leader. That means that all of next session's top leadership roles are held by men. At the state capital, Lee McGuire, KMOX News.
