JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri lawmakers are wrapping up their work early this week because of the severe winter storm.
The Senate was adjourning Tuesday until next week. House leaders also adjourned Tuesday morning. The full House was not scheduled to meet in a formal session until next week, though a few House committees still planned hearings. The House will hold technical floor sessions Wednesday and Thursday.
Also cancelled was an annual speech about the judiciary before a joint legislative session from Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice William Ray Price.
