JEFFERSON CITY- State lawmakers had a busy day Thursday and time is almost up for them to get legislation passed before the end of the session Friday evening.

Lawmakers debated a few bills that they hope to get on the Governor's desk before they run out of time.  The House and Senate passed a change to sex abuse laws where school districts have to disclose information about teachers who are fired for sexual abuse to other schools considering hiring that person.  

The Senate is one vote away from letting legislative workers conceal and carry guns at the Capitol.

One bill that died Thursday would eliminate February and June as public election months. 

Friday does not look like a slow day either.  Legislators will be debating big ticket bills like the St. Louis local control, the Chinese trade up at Lambert Airport and the proposed second nuclear plant in Callaway County. 

Legislators have until 6:00 p.m. Friday to wrap things up.  Then the House, Senate and Governor Nixon will all hold separate news conferences.
