Richard: Not considering filing merger legislation ‘at this time’

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Social media has been abuzz with rumors that the Senate President Pro Tem intending to file legislation to merge the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County.

That information came about following a tweet from Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul, who alluded to the potential filing of a bill

 But, it seems, that is not the case at this time. Richard released a statement Tuesday, saying:

“My intent is to get a general conversation started about the future of public safety and governance across the state. However, I do not plan to file any legislation at this time.” 

It does not mean legislation will not be filed at a later time, as the issue has been a topic of discussion for some time now. Whether the county and city should merge has been hotly debated, and the President Pro Tem has not been shy about sharing his thoughts on the matter.

But, for now, his intent is only to start the conversation. Whether a bill will be filed on the matter still remains to be seen.

Legislators may pre-file bills beginning Friday, December 1. The next legislative session begins on Wednesday, January 3.
