Legislative Update – December 7, 2018

Pre-Filing of Legislation for 2019 Legislative Session

The First Regular Session of the 100th Missouri General Assembly will kick off at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

Pre-filing of legislation for the 2019 session began Saturday, December 1, 2018.  At this time there have been 155 bills and 14 various resolutions filed in the Senate.  And, there have been 179 bills and 7 various resolutions filed in the House.

Your Missouri Right to Life Legislative Team is working with legislators on pro-life bills to file for the 2019 legislative session.  We have also begun reviewing all bills filed and will be reporting weekly in the lifelines during the legislative session.  We will update you on bills that have either a positive or negative impact on our ability to protect innocent human lives at every stage of life and development. 

Please read these updates.  Your knowledge on these important life issues is important for when you speak with your legislators.  Your involvement with your legislator is very important! 

When we put out a legislative alert for phone calls, e-mails and letters to legislators you need to be ready.  Your involvement is important to the passage of good solid pro-life legislation.

The most important event you can plan for in 2019 is to attend Pro-Life Action Day on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at the Missouri State Capitol. 

Please print off the “Show Me Life” Action Day flyer and distribute to your pro-life friends, family and church members.  http://www.missourilife.org/assets/2019-lobby_day_flyer.pdf

Your attendance at lobby day is essential to the passage of solid pro-life legislation and defunding Planned Parenthood!  Because of your work as volunteers in the elections, it will be an exciting time at the Capitol and you will want to be a part of it!

Thank you for your commitment to protecting innocent human lives!  Your support of Missouri Right to Life ensures protections for innocent human lives through the legislative process! 
See you in Jefferson City on March 12 at the “Show Me Life Action Day”!
Until then….Merry Christmas to you and your Family!
We have much to be thankful for!
