Missouri Bill to Protect Electronic Data Passes House Committee

A Missouri state constitutional amendment proposal is moving through the process, now just steps away from a vote of the people this fall.

Introduced by Sen. Rob Schaaf, Senate Joint Resolution 27 (SJR27) was passed through the House Downsizing State Government Committee late last week. It had previously passed in the senate by a 31-1 margin. The bill will now go to the House Rules Committee where it will need to pass through a majority before a full vote can be taken in the house.
