My Legislation for 2016
My priority piece of legislation is HB 1599, aka; the Missouri Adoptee Rights Act. It has done very well thus far, passing out of the House by a strong vote of 125-28. It's now on the informal floor calendar in the Senate and is expected to see a vote very soon. I've been in negotiations with the Senate concerning amendments to the bill. HB 1599, allows Missouri-born adult adoptees to obtain a copy of their original birth certificate, just the same as all other citizens of our state.
I'm always focused on Tourism and Trade and I'm pleased our budget for Tourism this year is 26.5 million dollars!
