Governor Eric Greitens' office says talk of a special session to fix in-home healthcare cuts is either confused or dishonest.
Wrap: Thousands of disabled, elderly and veteran Missourians were estimated to have their in-home healthcare affected by a legislative cut.
The General Assembly voted at the last minute to pay for in-home care by taking overages in special funds, but that was vetoed.The legislature can call a special session, but that requires a three-quarters vote of House and Senate members, respectively. The governor can also call a special session.
Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard brought together legislative leaders to negotiate a fix after the special session on abortion issues. Richard said a solution was ready over a week ago, but acknowledged Monday that a special session is unlikely since the governor's office did not respond.
Greitens' spokesman Parker Briden said that the governor had not seen a passable solution for the healthcare cuts and anyone who claimed a solution exists is "either confused or being dishonest."
