2014 End of Session Report

Dear Constituents,

On May 16, 2014, the final gavel sounded in the House chamber, and the 97th Missouri General Assembly adjourned.

As usual, the last days of Session were filled with long hours and determination to get the job done. Knowing your views and receiving input from so many citizens back home made a difference for me when it came time to vote. Your interest and involvement in the legislative process played an important role, and we accomplished many of our goals by working together.

This newsletter contains a complete list of the Truly Agreed To and Finally Passed Legislation for the Second Regular Session of the 97th General Assembly. Unless vetoed by the Governor, these bills will become law on August 28th of this year. Any vetoed bill can be taken up again by the General Assembly during the Veto Session in September. Detailed summaries and complete text of all legislation can be found at

I hope you find this newsletter helpful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

As always, it is an honor to serve.

Dave Hinson
