Missouri lawmakers returned to Jefferson City on Wednesday to begin the first regular session of the 102nd General Assembly. To date, over 1200 bills have already been filed in both the House and the Senate, setting the stage for a busy session.
One of the priorities for the legislators will be initiative petition reform. Numerous bills have been filed that would extend MO HealthNet postpartum care, establish guidelines for student participation in athletic contests organized by sex, and modify provisions relating to expungement.
The MCC will again provide you with weekly email Updates and occasional Action Alerts when action is needed on legislation. We would like to remind you to visit our Legislative Toolbox, which contains information on the legislative process, including links to state and federal offices, a glossary of legislative terms, and guides on how to contact your legislator.
