The special session cost taxpayers about $170,000

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says it's time for lawmakers to send him a job-creation bill or end their special legislative session.
Nixon said Wednesday the session has cost taxpayers about $170,000 since it began Sept. 6.
Legislators last week sent Nixon a bill revising a contentious new law about online communications between teachers and students.
But they parted ways without passing the top priority of the session. That bill would have scaled back Missouri's existing tax credits and offered new incentives for businesses to hire workers or export products through the St. Louis airport.
Republican House and Senate leaders have no further votes scheduled.
So did the special session accomplish what the Governor wanted?
