This Week in Missouri Politics – December 6, 2015

After a week-long break for Thanksgiving, This Week in Missouri Politics is back with Attorney General Chris Koster as host Scott Faughn’s special guest. Koster talks about his gubernatorial campaign, the legal challenges facing SB 5 in St. Louis, the West Lake Landfill debacle, and the upcoming legislative session.

The opinion-maker panel this week consists of former Speaker Steve Tilley, Rep. Elijah Haahr, R-Springfield; Crystal Brinkley, executive director of the Missouri Democratic Party; and Richard McIntosh, Partner of Flotron & McIntosh. They talk about Koster’s chances, the bizarre phone call between John Brunner and Eric Greitens, and the gubernatorial field. They also discuss legislative pre-filings and the earnings tax challenge.
