TTTT Takeaway Activism and Notes – February 2015

Legislative Review

The Missouri Legislature began its session on January 7th in Jefferson City and have begun debating and passing bills.   At the last meeting, we split up into groups, reviewed the legislation that has been filed by our local representatives (as well as other high profile legislation), and quickly came up with thoughts and suggestions for their actions / votes in the House and Senate. Should they proceed, vote against, or junk the bill?!

Unfortunately, time ran short for the final discussion of the bills. So, we reconvened the discussion and finalized our suggestions for our representatives’ actions

Legislative Session

The Missouri State Legislative session begins in January, and bills are pre-filed in December. The Local Legislative Sessions continue biweekly or monthly with ordinances and policies changed on a regular basis. At this month’s meeting, CCTP members reviewed legislation filed by local legislators, discussed the merits, and came to a consensus on how the legislators should vote on the bills.
