JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) - Missouri's governor is just a handful of Senate signatures away from facing a special session to consider his impeachment.

The House Democratic leader says Democrats delivered today the additional signatures for 3/4 majority needed for a special session.

The special session peitition now goes to the Senate, where Gov. Eric Greitens has even less support than in the House.

The session would begin May 18, just minutes after the regular session adjourns.

It can last only 30 days.

If the House votes to impeach, the decision to remove the governor would rest in the hands of seven jurorists, picked by the Senate.
