Sadly, after Right To Work passed, some in Jefferson City chose to act like spoiled children and freeze all Senate bills in a filibuster for two days.
If you watched the news then you likely saw Senator Keaveny’s brush-off of Mr. Barfield as he attempted to get Hailey’s Law in front of the Senate for a vote.
This was not the only important bill to die in filibuster this year, several others met a similar fate. This is the second year in a row that filibuster has stopped Hailey’s Law, this time it was a Senate vote away from passage.
As such, this effort will continue to push forward and those involved will continue their resolve to make changes for the sake of our children. While the session is over for now, the family will be engaging in outreach to victim families of similar tragedy as well as helping with fundraising efforts for those folks. Stay tuned as events get announced!
Full court press time folks. The Democrats lost on right to work and have now fillibustered every bill before the senate in retaliation. Although I applaud the fillibuster effort, it is vital that we call those Democrats and get them to read, vote on, and pass HB635, Hailey’s Law. If they do nothing else, this one bill needs to pass.
Jeff and Stacey are already in Jefferson City, so if you can be there before 6 pm, go for it and make these senators tell you no to your face! Be professional, it accomplishes a lot. Session ends at 6 tonight and this will be the SECOND time our legislature has failed to take action to correct the broken Amber Alert system.
On May 4th, 2015 Rep. Burlison’s Hailey’s Law provision passed the Senate Committee! It now goes before the Senate for a vote
Thank you to everyone involved. Now go write your Missouri Senators and ask them to pass it!
Time for a Senate run! Rep. Burlison’s Hailey’s Law provision has passed the Missouri House by voice vote UNCHALLENGED. That’s ZERO no votes!
It now goes before a Senate committee and Rep Burlison must read it before the Senate. It should pass the Senate as it is a very clean bill. Then it’s on the the Governor.
Ladies and gentlemen, remember that it took a stone being thrown in a pond to cause the ripples that got the attention of lawmakers. YOU helped bring this to life! If we get enough lead on when it might get signed, we’ll post it. It would be awesome to see the Governor sign it in front of Jeff and Stacey.
