Priority Legislation Passed by Senate Awaits Governor's Action

JEFFERSON CITY - The governor has until July 14, 45 days after the constitutional last day of session (May 30) to act on 46 Senate bills and 101 House measures delivered to him.

Three bills have already been vetoed: Senate Bill 188 would have modified the law relating to the Missouri Human Rights Act and employment discrimination, House Bill 193 changes the composition of congressional districts based on the 2010 Census (veto overridden by the Legislature), and House Bill 209 would have revised the laws regarding private nuisances when it originates from property used for farm production and when a court must visit an alleged affected property (similar legislation, Senate Bill 187, which changes state laws regarding nuisances and junkyards, was later signed by the governor).
