Meeting April 30th & SB24

All hands on deck! This is a very important meeting as an announcement from the Governor has been announced for earlier in the day regarding whether he will veto Senate Bill 24, a punishment-based welfare reform bill passed by both the Missouri House and Senate. We will either be making plans on the call for how to sustain his veto or figuring out ways to protect vulnerable families during the implementation.
