2021 Bill Filing Begins in Earnest

Mo Capitol River Side
State legislators began pre-filing bills in anticipation of the beginning of the 101st Missouri General Assembly, which convenes on Wednesday, January 6th, 2021. Incoming lawmakers have filed over 500 bills so far. It isn't clear at this point how the session will be conducted in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, but the pandemic certainly hasn't dampened the enthusiasm to file bills. In fact, a number of early filed bills deal with limitations imposed by local health departments on businesses, seeking to either limit the authority of local governments to shut down business, or impose time limits on shutdowns. As always, the MCC will be reporting on the progress of bills of concern to Missouri Catholics.
