Recent Legislation passed by the Missouri House and Reported to the SenatePosted Thursday, April 19, 2012, at 2:50 PM
HB 1515 is a large omnibus bill that changes certain laws regarding crimes and criminal procedures. The major changes are in the following categories: CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT REPORTING; PEACE OFFICER SAFETY ALERTS; ORDERS OF PROTECTION; DNA PROFILING ANALYSIS; UNLICENSED CHILD CARE PROVIDERS; CRIMES AGAINST THE ELDERLY; HOUSE OF WORSHIP ACT; FALSE IDENTIFICATION; MAKING A FALSE REPORT; CRIME SCENE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS.
HJR 71 Upon voter approval, this proposed constitutional amendment authorizes an exemption from property tax for an active-duty, military person's personal property that is not in use while he or she is stationed outside the country.
HB 1272 This substitute specifies that gross negligence will be the standard of proof in a court action for damages brought against a public or private jail, correctional center, detention center, or any other type of correctional facility or its employees as a result of a death by suicide of any inmate.
HCR 53 was written as a result of the Cole County Circuit Court rendering a March 27 decision to strike down the Voter ID amendment -a piece of legislation intended to protect the integrity of our elections- set for November's ballot. The court reasoned that the summary language of the amendment was "insufficient and unfair." The judge struck down the original summary language because it included the phrase the "Voter Protection Act" which doesn't appear in the language of the amendment.
It was Circuit Court Judge, Pat Joyce, who made the ruling and asked lawmakers to rewrite it. Thus, House Concurrent Resolution 53 is a response to that request. Introduced by Rep. Shane Schoeller it rewrites the ballot language so the Voter ID amendment can still be placed on the November ballot.
