Legislative Update: Missouri Bar committee legislative proposals under review

The Board of Governors of The Missouri Bar has approved two 2022 Bar-initiated legislative proposals for carryover to the 2023 legislative session. In addition, divisions and committees of The Missouri Bar have submitted six preliminary legislative proposals.  Pursuant to The Missouri Bar’s legislative procedures, those proposals must be published for review and comment by members of The Missouri Bar for a period of thirty days. The draft proposals and comment links are available on the website of The Missouri Bar, and the review-and-comment period will conclude at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2022.  Following the comment period, the members of the originating division or committee will vote electronically on approval of the final proposal.  Provided a majority of those participating vote in favor of the final proposal, a request for approval will be submitted to the Board of Governors for consideration at its meeting on Friday, November 18, 2022.  Government Relations staff will publish a notice to members at least fourteen days prior to the Board meeting (Friday, November 4, 2022), listing those proposals which will be on the Board agenda for consideration. 

The legislative procedures of The Missouri Bar are available on the Government Relations webpage of The Missouri Bar’s website.  If you have any questions about these proposals or the legislative procedures of The Missouri Bar, please contact Government Relations staff at 573-659-2280 or govrel@mobar.org for more information.
