JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — It's a 'no go' for plans to redraw congressional boundaries in Missouri. Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the measure Saturday morning.
Nixon says lawmakers need to make a plan that is, quote, a "better representation for all regions of the state."
One of Missouri's congressional seats was cut following the 2010 census, leaving the state with eight districts instead of nine.
Governor Nixon hopes to have a new plan in place by May 13, that's when the current legislative session ends.
