Nixon visits Rock Bridge

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon traveled to Columbia for a question and answer session with local students Friday afternoon.

Following the event at Rock Bridge High School, Nixon held a press conference where he explained his opposition to Senate Bill 586. He claims the bill, which has already passed through the Republican-controlled state Senate, will place an undue burden on local taxpayers by cutting state funding for public schools.

As of Friday, SB 586 had passed through two committees in the House of Representatives and was scheduled for further action before the full House.
