Jon Cecero (SIS-er-oh) has more from Jefferson City.
In a statement released by his office Matt Blunt said he will speak with House and Senate leaders to decide whether or not to discuss the special session proposed by Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder.
President Pro Tem Mike Gibbons said Kinder's session is a legitimate issue and is not a political ploy.
Description: "I think what the purpose here is to try to instead of having to wait until the winter season is over to try to get it done sooner which certainly makes sense."
House Minority Leader Paul LeVota called Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder's request for a special session a stunt.
The governor is considering a special session to address the Low Income Heating Assistance Program.
LeVota said since Kinder's election is not going his way he wanted this session arranged.
Senate President Pro Tem Mike Gibbons said the program is an important issue that needs to be addressed before the winter months.
The governor said he would consider the session after Tuesday's election.
Reporting from the State Capitol, I'm Jon Cecero.
