Missouri's lieutenant governor is arguing against an effort for the governor to call a special session. Laura McNamara reports.
The issue is the elderly prescription drug program that will expire the end of next year.
Maxwell chairs the program, but said he opposes a special session to keep it alive:
Maxwell will push for quick action when the new legislative body convenes in January.
While opposing a special session on the drug program, Maxwell said he did support a mid-September special session to address the bankruptcy of the Unemployment Compensation Fund.
