Jefferson City - The Missouri Senate is set to take on what some legislators say is their biggest task of the year.
Senator Ron Richard says the bulk of the work done on the Senate's version of the Show Me State's $27 billion budget will happen over the next few days. He says that typically involves early mornings and late nights, and could even push back the time the Senate goes into floor debate each day. Richard says work on the budget will get done, but it may require some patience. The House passed their version of the budget last week. Once the Senate gives their approval, Governor Eric Greitens will have the final say on the bills making up the state's budget.
