March 2023 Legislative Digest now available

Stay up to date about legislation that impacts you and your practice

The latest Legislative Digest is available, providing highlights from the Missouri Legislature thus far and allowing Missouri Bar members to stay up to date on legislation that impacts them and their practice.

The Legislative Digest is made available each year as a service to all members of The Missouri Bar. Each session, Government Relations staff identify and monitor bills of particular interest that could impact Missouri courts or the legal profession. The bill introduction deadline for this session was March 1. This mid-session issue of the Legislative Digest provides a cross-section of bills of particular interest that have been introduced.  

The Missouri Bar limits its review of legislation in the General Assembly to matters concerning the administration of justice, the integrity of the judiciary, improvement of the law, or the dignity of the profession of law. The bills of particular interest in this Legislative Digest have been referred to the Government Relations Committee and the Legislative Review Committee for review and recommendations to the Board of Governors or its Executive Committee on potential action.

In addition, The Missouri Bar’s Legislative Engagement Center provides information about other bills of interest in different subject or practice areas. These bills of interest reports are automatically updated with the current bill status and provide links to the relevant bill webpages. Anyone who is interested in a specific subject or practice area can bookmark the relevant report page for later reference.

Members are encouraged to submit comments on these or any other bills. You may e-mail any comments to govrel@mobar.org (please note the bill number in the subject line). The final day for floor action on bills will be Friday, May 12. If you have questions or comments about specific legislation, please contact Government Relations staff for more information.
