SB 1221 - This act may be cited as the "Missouri Sunset Act".

The act provides that all new programs authorized by the General Assembly will sunset six years after their effective date unless re-authorized by the General Assembly. New legislation must indicate whether it contains a program subject to this act.

Prior to the sunset of any program, the Committee on Legislative Research will evaluate the continued need of the program and develop a recommendation.
