The horror of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001— followed by the Capitol Hill anthrax attacks a month later—united the 107th Congress (2001–2003) behind a shared sense of national duty, and forged momentary bipartisanship. Though both chambers were narrowly divided between Republicans and Democrats, Congress authorized the use of force in Afghanistan and Iraq, established the Homeland Security Department, and easily passed anti-terrorism legislation.

AIDE WHO ASSAILED GORBACHEV'S PACE OUSTED IN MOSCOW
By Philip Taubman, Special To the New York Times
- Nov. 12, 1987
Boris N. Yeltsin was removed today as head of the Moscow Communist Party organization in the first public dismissal of a senior official who had been promoted by Mikhail S. Gorbachev.
Tass, the Soviet press agency, said Mr. Gorbachev had attended the meeting of the Moscow city party organization at which Mr. Yeltsin was dismissed, but the Soviet leader's own reaction was not made known.
The dismissal stemmed from Mr. Yeltsin's actions at a meeting of the Communist Party's ruling Central Committee on Oct. 21. According to reports of the meeting printed in the Western press, Mr. Yeltsin complained about the slow pace of change and criticized several top officials, including Mr. Gorbachev and Yegor K. Ligachev, the No. 2 party leader. Gorbachev's Role Unclear
It was not clear today whether Mr. Gorbachev wanted Mr. Yeltsin removed because of the outburst or felt he had no choice.
Several senior party officials have been removed since Mr. Gorbachev took power in March 1985, including five voting members of the Politburo, but before Mr. Yeltsin's ouster today, no one appointed to a top party post by Mr. Gorbachev had been dislodged.
Tass said Mr. Yeltsin, who is almost certain to lose his position as a non-voting member of the Politburo, would be replaced in the Moscow post by Lev N. Zaikov, a full member of the Politburo, who is considered to be one of Mr. Gorbachev's allies. Victory for Opponents Seen
The ouster of Mr. Yeltsin, who had seemed to personify the forces for change set in motion by Mr. Gorbachev, appeared to be at least a momentary victory for those who have resisted a thorough restructuring of Soviet society.
Mr. Ligachev has given the impression from some of his comments that he was wary of Mr. Gorbachev's pace. But Mr. Gorbachev himself, in a major speech on Nov. 2, also criticized those he said were too impatient for change.
Before his remarks on Oct. 21, Mr. Yeltsin appeared to be the quintessential Gorbachev man, a hard-driving manager, an ardent advocate of glasnost and restructuring and an acerbic critic of past party failures and ideological cant. He also seemed to enjoy publicity in the Western manner, allowing himself to be featured last spring in a CBS News documentary on Soviet life under Mr. Gorbachev.
Mr. Gorbachev was reportedly angered by Mr. Yeltsin's outburst at the Central Committee meeting, and may have felt compelled to remove someone who had so openly defied the party leadership. But it is widely assumed by Western diplomats and many Soviet officials that it was Mr. Ligachev who insisted on the ouster.
A good deal of information about the Yeltsin affair has become known to Western reporters, in a break in the secrecy that has traditionally hidden frictions in the Kremlin. But many key details remain unknown, including the exact roles Mr. Gorbachev and Mr. Ligachev played in today's decision.
Some Soviet officials have reported that Mr. Ligachev was the primary target of Mr. Yeltsin's attack on Oct. 21, and that the two men engaged in a heated argument before their astonished Central Committee colleagues.
Mr. Ligachev and Mr. Gorbachev have often differed in their public pronouncements, with Mr. Ligachev advocating a more cautious approach to change, particularly in liberalizing the arts, scholarship and the press. This circumstantial evidence has led most Western analysts to conclude that the two men are rivals, and that Mr. Ligachev has positioned himself to replace Mr. Gorbachev if the Soviet leader stumbles.
The Tass account of today's meeting said, ''The plenary meeting relieved Boris Yeltsin of his duties of first secretary and member of the bureau of the Moscow city party committee for major shortcomings in his leadership of the Moscow city party organization.''
Tass said the Moscow committee had ''fully endorsed'' a resolution approved by the Central Committee on Oct. 21 that found Mr. Yeltsin's speech that day to be ''politically erroneous.'' The existence of a resolution condemning Mr. Yeltsin had not been previously reported. Gorbachev Addresses Meeting
Tass said Mr. Gorbachev addressed today's meeting, which was also attended by Mr. Ligachev, but it did not provide any details about the Soviet leader's remarks.
The Tass announcement, read on the evening television news, was the first report about the Yeltsin affair to be made public in the Soviet Union. A Tass dispatch about it on Oct. 31 was withdrawn by the agency minutes after reaching Soviet newspapers, and comments by several top Soviet officials at news conferences were never reported inside the country.
The rapid removal of Mr. Yeltsin suggested that the climate of openness nutured by Mr. Gorbachev does not yet extend to outspoken criticism of the party leadership, even by one of its members, and that discipline in party ranks remains an unbreakable code.
The key question is how the Yeltsin affair has affected Mr. Gorbachev's standing as he prepares for his first visit to the United States next month. The answer is not clear. Party officials have called the Yeltsin affair a matter of little consequence, apparently hoping to push it from world view before Gorbachev travels to Washington on Dec. 7.
But the Government's handling of the case, including the Tass turnabout on Oct. 31, suggests it is a politically sensitive matter for Mr. Gorbachev. Veiled Indictment of Gorbachev
The ''major shortcomings'' of leadership that Mr. Yeltsin is accused of are in some ways a veiled indictment of Mr. Gorbachev, who brought him into the top leadership by making him Moscow party chief in December 1985 and a non-voting member of the Politburo two months later.
At the least, Mr. Gorbachev's judgment in selecting Mr. Yeltsin seems open to criticism by colleagues and opponents. According to one Soviet official who took part in the Central Committee meeting on Oct. 21, Mr. Ligachev openly blamed Mr. Gorbachev for promoting Mr. Yeltsin and declared that he had always doubted Mr. Yeltsin's abilities and stability.
Because Mr. Yeltsin was a symbol of change - a hero to many Russians and a villain to others - his ouster, even for self-inflicted failures, shows that Mr. Gorbachev's key lieutenants can be dislodged.
The appointment of Mr. Zaikov to the Moscow post seems intended to demonstrate that restructuring of the key party organization will continue.
Mr. Zaikov, who is 64 years old, ran the Leningrad regional party organization from 1983 to 1985, making him a logical choice to take control of the larger, more powerful Moscow organization at difficult moment when Mr. Gorbachev needed a sure and loyal hand to replace Mr. Yeltsin. A Powerful City Organization
Although the move could be seen as a demotion for Mr. Zaikov, who has been a Central Committee secretary and the party leader in charge of the defense industry for the last two years, he is expected to retain his position as a full member of the Politburo.
The Moscow organization, one of the most powerful units in the national party, represents the interests of the thousands of Government and party members living and working in the capital, many of whom are most immediately threatened by the changes Mr. Gorbachev has introduced and that Mr. Yeltsin so passionately defended.
Mr. Yeltsin's effort to reshape and rebuild an organization that had been run like a fiefdom for 18 years by Viktor V. Grishin, a close colleague of Leonid I. Brezhnev, has been a microcosm of Mr. Gorbachev's effort to remake Soviet society.

About the office
Members of the Missouri House of Representatives serve two-year terms with term limits .  Missouri legislators assume office the first day of the legislative session, which is the first Wednesday after the first Monday in January at 12:00pm. 
To be eligible to serve in the Missouri House of Representatives , a candidate must meet the following qualifications: 
The Missouri legislature is one of 16 state legislatures with term limits . Voters enacted the Missouri Term Limits Act in 1992. That initiative said that Missouri representatives are subject to term limits of no more than four two-year terms, or a total of eight years. 
The first year that the 1992 term limits impacted the ability of incumbents to run for office was 2002.
If there is a vacancy in the Missouri General Assembly , the governor of Missouri must call for a special election without delay. The election mandate is sent to the county or counties in the legislative district. 
Missouri completed its legislative redistricting on March 15, 2022, when the state’s Judicial Redistricting Commission filed new state Senate district boundaries with the secretary of state.  Missouri was the 43rd state to complete legislative redistricting. The House Independent Bipartisan Citizens Commission unanimously approved the state House’s district boundaries on Jan. 21.  These maps took effect for Missouri’s 2022 legislative elections.
The Senate Independent Bipartisan Citizens Commission failed to submit proposed maps to the secretary of state's office by the December 23, 2021, deadline. Therefore, responsibility for developing Senate district boundaries was assumed by the Missouri Judicial Commission for Redistricting.  The judicial commission released their final plan and sent it to the secretary of state's office on March 15, 2022. The commission’s chair, Missouri Appeals Court Justice Cynthia Lynette Martin , said in a press release, "The Judicial Redistricting Commission’s work has been thorough and labor intensive, and was purposefully undertaken with the goal to file a constitutionally compliant plan and map well in advance of the commission’s constitutional deadline to avoid disenfranchising voters given the candidate filing deadline and the deadline for preparing ballots."  Scott Faughn of The Missouri Times wrote that "The biggest difference in this map and that previous map is that it shifts the weight of some of the districts from rural weighted districts to evenly split districts and even enhances the suburban influence inside several republican seats." He added, "the new map produces 7 solid democratic districts, and 3 likely democratic districts. On the republican side the new map produces 18 solid republican districts, and 3 more likely republican districts," with two competitive districts when the current incumbents no longer seek office. 
The House Independent Bipartisan Citizens Commission unanimously approved new state House district boundaries on January 19, 2022. Fourteen of the commission's 20 members were required to approve the plan. If the commission was unable to agree on a redistricting plan by January 23, 2022, authority over the process would have transferred to the Missouri Judicial Commission for Redistricting.  In a press release issued after the map was finalized, commission chair Jerry Hunter said, "I want to personally thank all of the commissioners for the hard work that was put in by the commissioners and, obviously, as all of you know, the supporting individuals that have been instrumental to helping get this map done on both sides – on both the Democratic and Republican sides."  Rudi Keller of the Missouri Independent wrote, "Of the 163 districts..., there are 38 where Democrats should have the advantage, 97 where Republicans are dominant and 28 districts with past election results showing less than a 10% advantage for either party." 
How does redistricting in Missouri work? In Missouri, congressional district boundaries are drawn by the state legislature . These lines are subject to veto by the governor . 
Two distinct politician commissions are ultimately responsible for state legislative redistricting, one for the Missouri State Senate and another for the Missouri House of Representatives . Membership on these commissions is determined as follows: 
- Senate redistricting commission: The state committee of each major political party nominates 10 members to the commission, for a total of 20 nominees. From this pool, the governor selects five members per party, for a total of 10 commissioners.
- House redistricting commission: The congressional district committee of each major political party nominates two members per congressional district, for a total of 32 nominees. From this pool, the governor appoints one member per party per district, for a total of 16 commissioners.
