JEFFERSON CITY - Two recently elected Missouri lawmakers are joining their colleagues at the state Capitol.

Moon is scheduled to be sworn into office next week. He will represent the 157th House District, which covers most of southwestern Missouri's Lawrence County.
Moon replaces Republican Don Ruzicka, who was named to the state Board of Probation and Parole
