Four States Homepage

Last week, the Senate gave their approval to a bill that would change several portions of a Missouri Abortion Law, including giving the state attorney general concurrent jurisdiction to file charges in certain cases, and requiring clinics to maintain certain health standards.State Representative Charlie Davis says although the senate spent several hours debating the legislation, he doesn't believe the house will take nearly as long to approve the legislation and send it to the Governor's desk."I'm very excited that the Senate got it out without a major filibuster, and I'm excited that the House is going to have the opportunity to vote on it, and I promise you we will vote it out of the House and it will go to the Governor's desk," explains State Representative Charlie Davis.Davis says debate will likely begin on the bill Tuesday.
