June 11, 2018 - 8:38 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Governor Mike Parson isn't waiting very long to tour the state and meet with more top lawmakers.

The governor, sworn in a little more than a week ago, has announced he'll spend this Tuesday and Wednesday traveling across Missouri.

Parson and his team will start in Springfield at 8:00 tomorrow morning and wrap up in St. Louis at 4:30 Wednesday afternoon. Parson's office, in a news release, says they'll talk to carious communities about infrastructure, workforce development and other challenges facing the state.

His stop in St. Louis on Wednesday will be in the Cortex District at the 4240 Duncan building around 4:30. U.S. Senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill say they're heading to Jefferson City Monday to meet with Parson.
