Missouri special session update: what’s passed, what’s signed, and what hasn’t

During the second week of the second special legislative session, the House of Representatives made a few changes to the Senate bill. The most major change is that under the House bill, the Attorney General could prosecute an abortion related offense without notifying the local prosecutor.  Under the Senate version, the local Attorney General could only prosecute an abortion related offense if the local prosecutor failed to do so.

Because the House changed the Senate Bill, the bill must go back to the Senate.  The Senate is expected to reconvene the week of July 3.
