The senate does have the filibuster option. One tenacious senator with a mighty bladder can talk a bill to death. Ask your senator then not just to vote against, but also to mount a filibuster. It’s our only hope. Oh, and there’s reason for optimism that the new senator for the 4th district on the west side of the city, Jake Hummel, may be more responsive to defending public education than his predecessor was. But whomever represents you, please ask.
Senator Hummel may be reached at (573) 751-3599 or Jacob.Hummel@senate.mo.gov. If you are represented by
Senator Nasheed you may reach her at (573) 751-4415 or Jamilah.Nasheed@senate.mo.gov. Senator Scott Sifton may be reached at Toll Free: (866) 342-4905. He does not list an email address. If you are represented by another senator, you may locate their contact information at http://wordpress.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=febf37d8c53a262d3cca40d04&id=63ab2339a5&e=3fe73d6d79.
