Gov. Nixon's Signing Statement on Revised Agricultural Nuisance Legislation Passed by General Assembly

Press Release

Date:
Location: Jefferson City, MO

Gov. Jay Nixon today released the following statement on Senate Bill 187, passed by the General Assembly and signed into law today:

"In my veto message on House Bill 209, I expressed my concerns about two provisions of the law: first, that it was too broad; and second, that it would have precluded the neighbors of nuisances relating to crop or animal production from obtaining punitive damages.

"Punitive damages are an important legal tool: they send a strong message to bad actors to clean up their act.

Senate Bill 187 addresses both these concerns and as a result, has earned my signature."
