Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 744 - This act removes a provision in current law that prohibited the Office of Administration from contracting with a private firm to provide armed security guards at the State Capitol. The act provides that the Office of Administration shall establish and maintain a system of video or digital camera surveillance for all public spaces within the State Capitol building. Such system shall be available to the Missouri Capitol police officers. Any records produced by the system shall only be used for official investigations of criminal offenses, shall be considered closed records under the Sunshine Law, and shall only be disclosed to a law enforcement agency in order for such agency to carry out its official duties.

This act contains an emergency clause.
