NEW MADRID – Gov. Nixon, senior administration officials and education leaders from throughout southeast Missouri today met at New Madrid County Central High School to discuss the impact of House Bill 253 on Missouri’s public schools. Gov. Nixon vetoed House Bill 253 last month, calling it an unaffordable experiment that would force dramatic cuts to education and raise taxes on prescription drugs.
