Although the legislative session ended Friday, Missouri's governor has called the legislature back for a special session.

In a release from his office, Gov. Eric Greitens stated certain politicians had blocked an attempt to bring a steel mill and other projects to the Show-Me State.

“We are fighting to bring more jobs to the people of Missouri," Greitens said in the release. "Some career politicians failed to do their jobs and then went home. That’s wrong. We’re cancelling their summer vacations and calling a special session to get this done.”

The governor stated he believed the projects could create hundreds of jobs in the southeastern part of the state.

Greitens stated the special session will begin at 4 p.m. Monday.
