The House recessed at 4 o'clock leaving many to wonder if there's enough time to get it all done before the end of session.
Jack Cardetti, spokesman for the governor, said there's enough time to get everything done, but the two chambers need to get to work.

|Description: "This time of year there's always tension between the House and Senate, but the important thing is that everybody knows what the goal is here. The goal is to get a health care bill and an economic development bill on the governor's desk."|
House Republican Floor Leader Steven Tilley said recessing would not stop the House from assigning members to conferences created to settle differences between House and Senate bill versions.

House Majority Floor Leader Steven Tilley said that recessing early did not stop the House from doing last minute work on health care legislation.
But House Minority Leader Paul LeVota said taking off early was irresponsible.

|Description: "From my understanding, the House wants an eco devo bill done; the Senate wants a health care bill done. It's hard to get a bill done when we're not in session, it sounds like the House has determined that they don't care what the priorities of the Senate are, or the governor, or the good things that move Missouri forward. They're going to close shop."|
