(KMOV) – Some Missouri lawmakers are considering shortening the legislative session to make the law creation process more efficient.

St. Louis County Republican Jim Lamping is sponsoring a bill to end the session in late March rather than in the middle of May. 

Lamping says the shorter season would accelerate bills and make voting more efficient due to the time constraints.

If approved by both the Missouri house and senate, voters would get a say in November.
