Is a new law’s aim to punish the Missouri State Highway Patrol for buying an expensive airplane without getting permission from lawmakers? Or was the lawmakers’ intent to punish Gov. Jay Nixon?

Unsigned by the governor, the law will be in force Aug. 28. It will require the Patrol to obtain legislative approval before spending more than $100,000 from a special state fund on any vehicle. There aren’t many, if any, Patrol vehicles that cost $100,000 to our knowledge. Is the measure just a message rather than direct punishment?
