Missouri Legislators Will Consider Special Session Violent Crime Bills Individually

The Missouri House announced Tuesday it is breaking up Gov. Mike Parson’s tough-on-crime package of special session legislation into one-subject bills.

House Speaker Elijah Haahr said the House is breaking up the package into single subjects to “protect the integrity of the lawmaking process.”

This comes after Parson announced Monday an addition to the package that would allow the attorney general to prosecute crimes in St. Louis.

The House had been expected to wrap up Wednesday but now won’t take up the individual bills until Aug. 24.
