is funding for a new fulton state hospital in trouble?
House Majority Floor Leader John Diehl says Governor Nixon wanted there to be a problem with the tax cut the legislature has proposed, so he could garner support for a veto of it.
Diehl says that’s what led to a rumor that the legislature would scrap plans to replace the state mental hospital at Fulton if Nixon does veto the tax cut, and he says a phone conference last week backs up his claim…
Diehl says the Fulton project remains a legislative priority regardless of the outcome of the tax legislation.
