Measures Related to Health Care Insurance Coverage of Some Services, DNA Profiling and Vehicle Inspections Delivered to the House

Before heading back to their respective legislative districts, lawmakers in the Missouri Senate sent several measures over to the House for its consideration this week and debated numerous bills on the Senate floor.


Senators also successfully overrode the governor’s recent veto of a workers’ compensation bill, Senate Bill 572, sponsored by Senate Majority Floor Leader Tom Dempsey, R-St. Charles. Among other provisions, the legislation addresses protections for co-employees who are at risk of personal lawsuits for their role in honest accidents at work. A two-thirds vote is needed to override a governor’s veto – that’s 23 in the Senate and 109 in the House. The vote to override the veto on SB 572 in the Senate was 24-9. The House must approve the override motion to enact the legislation.

In addition, a Senate bill has received both chambers’ stamp of approval this week and is now headed to the governor for his signature. Senate Bill 450 changes the length of school board terms for certain school districts in Missouri that became urban districts due to the shift in population after the 2010 census.
