GOP legislators plan push back against ‘tyranny’ in St. Louis County

By 97.1 FM Talk

Senator Bill Eigel (MO R – Dist. 23) says it’s the role of the state government to push back against local tyranny and it’s time to take action against St. Louis County Executive Sam Page.

Eigel says he and Senator Andrew Koenig (MO R – Dist. 15) intend to introduce legislation that will restrict the power of local entities to close or limit businesses. The bill will also address the power of local government to place restrictions on private gatherings.

To expedite the process, Eigel explains that Governor Parson will need to extend the special session agenda.

Eigel’s message to struggling businesses, “Help is on the way.”
