Mo. lawmakers begin pre-filing bills for 2010

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (St. Louis Public Radio) – Missouri lawmakers today began pre-filing bills for their 2010 legislative session, which begins next month.

Among the several dozen bills filed so far are two that would extend the ban on texting-while-driving to everyone. A law was signed earlier this year that only applies to drivers age 21 and younger.

Some bills that fail every year are back. They include one that would make it a crime to coerce a woman into having an abortion, and another that would allow motorcyclists age 21 and older to ride without a helmet.

Another bill would lower the age that people can get permits to carry concealed weapons from 23 to 21. And there’s proposed legislation that would allow people to carry weapons to church and to other worship services.

The 2010 legislative session begins January 6th.
