HB 657 was heard on the floor and did not have the support to make it past this step. The Speaker tabled it and with session ending next week there is not enough time to make it through the process this year. While this is disappointing there is momentum we can take into next session. The opposition to the bill was misinformed. Education is the goal for this summer and next session. Using facts to continue to support this common sense change for the state of Missouri.
