The issue which the Governor vetoed was SB 67 which was a bill introduced by Sen. Mike Cunningham that made modifications to Court Fees.  This is important to because there was some language to be clarified on a landlord tenant rule introduced as HB 1006 by Rep. Gary Cross. that had made major changes in the law concerning evictions in MO.
