The Check-In: Your Legislature In 2021

We are coming out of one of the most tumultuous elections in recent memory, so it's understandable that you might want to take a rest from keeping up with politics. But the reality of politics doesn't stop — whether in Washington D.C. or Jefferson City — and the decisions made in both places affect our lives throughout the year. 

So today, we're talking about the 2021 Missouri Legislative Session and some of the most important issues you need to know about. We're also talking civic engagement, and the ways that you can get involved. What issues do you care about? How do you stay engaged outside of voting?

  • Mark Horvit, Director of MU's State Government Reporting Program
  • Hannah France, Producer for The Check-In
