Defending traditional families

Under the Dome: May 12, 2013

Last Week.  The House and Senate both voted on the final versions of the 2014 Budget.  The DOR budget was finalized at 2/3 funding for the next 8 months, with

the understanding that they would then have to come back to the table in January for a supplemental funding bill to finish out the fiscal year.  Gov Nixon is having a

Missouri General Assembly: 2013 First Regular Session, last week – 5/13-17/2013

 

Key Issues and Viable Bills Facing the Last Week of Session – Or Passed Already

 

 

DOR Scandal:             HB 787   &   SB 252    These bills require an immediate stop of all non-commercial driver licenses from being scanned, and prohibits the processing of bio-metric information on such driver and

non-driver license applicants.  (Note: Federal government take-over of Commercial Drivers Licenses several years ago prevents the Legislature from protecting State CDL drivers.)

 

2014 Budget Cuts (1/3 withheld) Truly Agreed and Finally Passed 

 

SB 75  is a gun bill but now contains the necessary provisions to remove CCW endorsements from DOR fee offices and leaves this final step in the CCW process with local sheriffs.

 

HB 859 is expected to be expanded to include the same DOR/CCW provisions as SB 75.

 

 

Abortion                     2014 Budget  has been Truly Agreed and Finally Passed and included the A2A funding.

 

SB 20 reestablishes tax credit for donations to qualifying PRCs. Truly Agreed and Finally Passed.

 

SB 126 has been Truly Agreed and Finally Passed to protect the conscience rights of pharmacies.

Animal Rights             CCS SS HCS HJRs 11 & 7 a constitutional amendment affirming the right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices.  Facing a filibuster in the Senate.

 

 

Education                    SB 210 seeks to set up a series of public forums as a prerequisite for DESE to adopt Common Core Initiatives.  Staged meetings held recently by DESE were stacked and rigged in an effort to prevent this bill                                                       from passing.  SB 210 passed the Senate, has a hearing in the House Education Committee on Tuesday, and is expected to be adopted by the House by Friday.

 

HB 152 & HB 505 were both passed by the House with a sneaky set of brackets no one saw or understood that would allow schools to go back to hiding sexual predators from public accountability.  Both bills

HB 505 (see Education above) contains a provision requiring equal payments for SAFE exams of children in alleged child sex abuse cases.  This helps resolve past serious discrepancies.

 

                                                HB 134 (see Education above) has been corrected and no longer contains the pro-homosexual provision a previous version had.  This bullying bill requires all students to be treated equally.

 

SB 16 Exempts farm work performed by children under 16 from certain child labor requirements.

 

 

Gambling                    HB 747 attempts to allow casinos to extend credit to gambling patrons.  It FAILED a committee vote last week, and we are now watching to oppose any amendment(s) to resurrect the bill.

                                                HB 533 allows all government employees to park in government employment property with a concealed firearm as long as it is out of sight and the doors are locked.
