Rep. Rob Vescovo (R-Arnold) has been selected by the Republican Caucus to serve as the House Majority Floor Leader beginning January 3, 2018. The leadership position was vacated when former House Majority Floor Leader Mike Cierpiot won election to the Missouri Senate in the recent special election.
The House Majority Floor Leader position is the second most powerful position in the House, next to the Speaker of the House. Speaker Todd Richardson will serve his final session as Speaker in the 2018 Legislative Session. Following Speaker Richardson will be speaker-elect Rep. Elijah Haahr (R-Springfield).
