Updated 03-11-19. On March 12th, a House committee is holding a hearing and vote on an important bill to help protect the 4th Amendment in Missouri. Following the steps below, 10-15 minutes of your time can do a great deal to help this bill pass!

Background: Rep. Ron Hicks (R-Dardenne Praire) filed House Bill 296 (HB296). The proposed law would ban the state – including all agencies and political subdivisions – from using manpower, money, or other resources to help implement or effectuate federal surveillance programs that violate the 4th Amendment. If you’d like to get all the details, you can read our report at this link

PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS to support this important bill today.

1. Call and email the members of the House Special Committee on Homeland Security. Be firm, but respectful and professional. Let each committee member know you support HB296 and you’d like to see them vote YES on the bill. A phone call is FAR more effective than an email. And both works best. But choose whatever option works for you and your schedule.
