Just before 11:00 PM last night, the Missouri House gave initial approval to
HB 2171. The legislation needs one more vote before going to the Senate.
Yesterday's vote was a "voice" vote, rendering it impossible to tell who
voted for the bill and who did not. I believe, though, that the bill has
bipartisan support, given that Representative Unsicker, a democrat from St.
Louis County, stated that "this is a good bill"; having said that, after
making that statement, she offered an amendment, which was voted down-so I'm
not sure if that will affect her support for the legislation. I expect the
legislation to to be voted out tomorrow or Thursda; the vote at that time
will be a "recorded" vote.
