Second March Primary Bill Heads to Conference in Missouri

The Missouri House this afternoon rejected the state Senate's call for the House to recede its amendments to SB 270 and forced a conference committee to now consider the bill. As was the case with SB 282, SB 270 would shift the Show Me state presidential primary from February to March. The House has passed three bills with provisions to accomplish that task and the Senate has failed to consider or forced conference committee consideration of all three.

Again, the Missouri General Assembly will adjourn on Friday, so time is running out for a national party rules compliant move to be made on the presidential primary question.
