St. Joseph Senator Charlie Shields is proposing a bill that would prohibit candidates for the House, Senate, or another statewide office from receiving contributions during a legislative session. But St. Louis County Senator Tim Green wants to add an amendment, making sure those candidates are paying their taxes.
Shields' bill says lobbyists should get approval from public officials before spending a dime. From Jefferson City, I'm Josh Kranzberg.
