This Week in Missouri Politics – January 17, 2016

On this week’s episode of This Week in Missouri Politics, Brandon Butler, the executive director of the Conservation Federation of Missouri, speaks with host Scott Faughn about his organization’s work in the legislature this year. They discuss bills involving poaching, invasive feral hogs and how he pursues his work outside of government.

Then, Faughn sits down with the opinion-maker panel to discuss a busy week in Missouri. Mark Dalton, assistant political director for the Carpenters District Council of Greater St. Louis, Jeff Rainford with Rainford & Associates, and Reps. Ron Hicks and Rocky Miller discuss “Kroenke sucks” chants at the Scottrade Center and the departure of the Rams to Los Angeles, how to turn St. Louis around after a hard year-and-a-half, ethics legislation in the House of Representatives and the presidential race.
