Pre-filing of Legislation Begins for the 2020 Legislative Session

MO Capitol

Monday, Dec. 2 marked the first day that Missouri legislators could file bills for the 2020 legislative session. Legislators wasted no time, filing over 600 bills in the first days of pre-filing. This number represents nearly one third of all the bills filed in 2019. The MCC staff will be reviewing and tracking legislation of interest and will be reporting on those bills in the coming weeks. Our 2020 public policy priorities will be finalized and published in mid-January, but for now, you can take a look at the public policy priorities from 2019 on our website.

The MCC website also provides a Legislative Toolbox that contains information on the legislative process, including a list of elected officials, a glossary of legislative terms, and guides on how to contact your legislator. In addition, for those new to the legislative process, or those who want a refresher, we have provided a diagram detailing how a bill becomes law in Missouri.
