Current Bill Summary


SCS/SB 814 - This act changes, from "J88" to "DHH", the notation on a person's driver's license that indicates the person has a diminished capacity to discriminate speech when spoken in a normal conversational tone. The Department of Revenue may, by rule, elect to use the phrase "deaf or hard of hearing" in lieu of the "DHH" notation.

This act also requires the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to make an informational video in American Sign Language explaining deaf or hard of hearing license notations. A QR code linking to the video shall be posted conspicuously in every license office in the state.

This act is identical to HCS/HB 1572 (2018), provisions in SCS/HCS/HBs 2277 & 1983 (2018), provisions in the perfected SB 919 (2018), and provisions in HCS#2/SS#2/SCS/SB 1050 (2018).
