The 2018 legislative session has come to an end, and I believe it was one of the most successful sessions in recent years. I am proud of the work done by my colleagues in both legislative chambers during the past four months. Several pieces of legislation that I filed were passed and will be sent to the governor for his consideration These measures include:
- Senate Bill 623 clarifies disbursement of tax sale foreclosure surplus funds;
- Senate Bill 806 updates guardianship statutes;
- Senate Bill 914, which was contained in Senate Bill 982, allows for electronic insurance notifications for certain electronic devices;
- Senate Bill 915, which was included in House Bill 1531, limits the amount of outside attorney fees the Attorney General can pay in certain cases;
- Senate Bill 917 establishes DNR guidelines relating to coal ash;
- Senate Bill 951 and House Bill 2183 relate to hospital regulations.
- Senate Bill 977, which is contained in Senate Bill 627, makes Missouri the first state in the nation to ensure that products can only be labeled as meat if the come from a harvested animal;
- Senate Bill 805, which is contained in Senate Bill 819, allows minors in state care to open checking accounts; and
- Senate Bill 1046, which is contained in Senate Bill 871, updates child protection order statutes.
I also want to take this opportunity to say thank you to my incredible staff. I truly could not have done it without you!
In September, we will return to Jefferson City for the annual veto session. Until then, I look forward to spending more time in the district this summer.
