House speaker Jones tours northeast Missouri

Missouri House Speaker, Tim Jones

Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones made rounds in northeast Missouri Thursday.

KTVO caught up with him at POET Biorefining in Macon.

The ethanol plant gave a presentation about the history of the company and their work today.

KTVO spoke with Jones before the presentation regarding the Missouri General Assembly 's override of Missouri Governor Nixon ten times.

KTVO asked specifically about the one bill that the Assemlby did not override, House Bill 253.

â??That was one of the few we did not,â?? Jones said â??We brought up 13-14 bills in the House and I think ten of them we did override. House Bill 253 was a challenging bill from the beginning. There was a lot of different diverse interest on that.â??
