Missouri’s legislative session ended on May 14 at 6pm this year, when the House officially stood adjourned. The Senate ended roughly four hours earlier when Senate Minority Leader John Rizzo motioned to adjourn, having promised that no legislative work would get done that day due to issues and distrust within the chamber.
Some major pieces of legislation passed this year, like Sens. Tony Luetkemeyer and Brian Williams’ police reform bill, Rep. Phil Christofanelli’s education reform bill, and Sen. Holly Rehder’s PDMP legislation. Each of these bills made headlines when they went through committee hearings, were debated on the floor, and eventually passed.
Other bills didn’t receive the same level of press coverage, but may be just as important to lobbyists, non-profit organizations, or citizens who are trying to keep an eye on their lawmakers.
