University of Missouri students are speaking out against a Missouri bill that would cut income-taxes in the state, and that critics call detrimental to education funding. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the bill, and spent the summer campaigning widely to avoid a legislative override of that veto. 

MU students crowded into the MU Student Center last night to take a stand against a veto override for House Bill 253, calling the gathering “Kill the Bill.”
