On June 18, 2003 a day after the Republican-controlled legislature approved several bills that make up the $19 billion fiscal 2004 budget package, Missouri Governor Bob Holden vetoed the education bills because he believes the funding cuts are too steep, according to budget director Linda Luebbering. The Democratic governor's action puts the ball back in the court of the General Assembly, which has been meeting in special session to pass new versions of the spending plans for education, health, and mental health services that Holden previously vetoed. To address education funding levels for kindergarten through the 12th grade and higher education, Holden wants the legislature to approve an emergency three-month spending bill for education at the level included in the bills that body adopted earlier this week.
