Tempers flared this morning on the House Floor as members wrapped up the budget debate. A few stories from around the state about the dust-up:
- KC Star: "House decorum devolves -- briefly -- in budget debate"
- Post-Dispatch: "Mo. House lawmakers engage in heated budget altercation"
- AP: "2 Mo. House members separated during budget debate"
Here's what things sounded like to the folks at home. The first voice you hear is Rep. Jeff Roorda (D- Barnhart). Rep. Tim Jones (R-Eureka) can be heard yelling in the background at around the 3:15 mark. The photo above was probably taken shortly after that point.
