This Week in Missouri Politics – February 7, 2016

Scott Faughn welcomes This Week’s special guest Rep. Holly Rehder, R-Sikeston, to speak about her ongoing work to make Missouri the 50th state in the nation to have a prescription drug monitoring program called the Narcotics Control Act. They also discuss the fast pace of this year’s House calendar, bills to ban the advertisement of sex trafficking, the Republican Presidential primary, and the success of Jeff Roe.

On this week’s opinion maker panel, Laura Swinford, executive director of Progress Missouri, Mindy Mazur of GPS Impact, former Speaker Tim Jones, and Rep. Shamed Dogan, R-Ballwin, talk about Rehder’s Narcotics Control Act, the Iowa Caucuses, that Donald Trump is now a loser, and the chaos at the University of Missouri.
