The Daily Dish — Feb. 12

The first of two meetings scheduled to address the future of Columbia Transit is scheduled for Monday, February 13 at Unitarian Universalist Church. The proceedings, headed by City Councilwoman Barabara Hoppe, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Can’t make it tomorrow? There’s a second date beyond the jump.

The Columbia Board of Education will vote on another hot topic, school boundaries, at Monday night’s meeting. Citizens unsatisfied with the finalized boundaries may lobby for extended transfer options for students adversely affected by the redistricting.

Missouri government at the state level is not without its own weekend controversies: Legislation pertaining to voter ID and workplace discrimination is making its rounds around the capitol. Similar bills were vetoed by Governor Jay Nixon last year and, because he has made no indication he’ll budge, state legislators appear to be headed for a fight.
