Sen. Sandy Crawford’s Capitol Report for the Week of March 7

This week, the Missouri Senate Insurance and Banking Committee heard my Senate Bill 1042, which seeks to enact provisions relating to electronic delivery of insurance documents or notices, and Senate Bill 1063, legislation that would extend the sunset on the rolling stock tax credit.

Also, Senate Bill 655 has been passed by the Missouri Senate and now moves to the Missouri House of Representatives for its consideration. This measure seeks to cover, through the Missouri Local Government Employees’ Retirement System, emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, emergency telecommunicators and jailors as public safety personnel.
