Emison for Conservation Board

Governor Jay Nixon nominated James Kent Emison as a member of the Conservation Commission.  This nomination follows the Senate’s refusal to confirm Nixon’s last choice, Tim Dollar.


Dollar was a former president of the Missouri Trial Attorneys Association.  Interestingly, so is Emison.


Sen. Brian Munzlinger has been adamant that he won’t accept any nominee who does not hail from the northeast quadrant of the state – an area which feels they have been under-represented on the Conservation Commission.  Emison, from Lafayette County, is not in that area.


So expect a little drama here….
