ST. LOUIS – The You Paid For It Team makes some new discoveries about the holdup in passing legislation to help St. Louis fight the Coronavirus Crisis.

The Cares Act passed the St. Louis Board of Aldermen this week. The measure was supposed to be fast-tracked. But, it took just over a month to get through the board.

Aldermen, as well as the Office of Board President Lewis Reed, pointed to Alderwoman Sharon Tyus as the culprit. She’s the chair of the Rules and Engrossment Committee. Legislation goes through her committee before being finally passed to make sure all is in order.

Investigator Elliott Davis discovered that the bill introduced on June 5th didn’t get to Sharon Tyus’s Committee until June 26th.
