Missouri State Senate


SB 244 - This act provides that the funeral director or person acting as such, instead of entering the data directly into the electronic death registration system, may, at his or her option, complete and file the death certificate in paper form with the local registrar. In the event of such a paper filing, the local registrar or state registrar shall enter the death certificate into the electronic death registration system. If this manual paper filing option is used, the local registrar shall issue certified copies of death certificates for the first twenty-four hours after filing and accept fees for such issuance as provided for by law.
