FILE - In this Thursday, May 17, 2018 file photo, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens waves to supporters as he walks to the podium to announce the release of funds for the state's biodiesel program in Jefferson City, Mo. The Missouri Senate is backing an effort to make it harder to impeach and remove top officials, less than a year after the former governor resigned while facing potential impeachment. The proposed constitutional amendment would abolish the grounds on which House members had been weighing whether to impeach Gov. Eric Greitens. The former Republican governor resigned June 1. The Senate measure, which was endorsed earlier this week, needs another vote to go to the House.
