Missouri: Correction--Highway Patrol Bill Fails to Gain Passage

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The bill that would have created a level educational field for all
persons applying to the State Highway Patrol unfortunately failed to
gain passage. (This corrects our e-lert dated May 19, 2008.)

S.B. 723 was non-controversial. It simply provided that anyone who
completed high school in compliance with Missouri law was eligible to
apply to become a highway patrol officer (the law previously required
an "accredited" education or a GED).

It passed the Senate unanimously on February 28. The House passed a
slightly modified version by a vote of 141 to 7 on May 14. Even with
this overwhelming margin, it had to go back to the Senate for approval
because the House modified the bill slightly.

The Senate put the bill in line to be acted upon. However, other
bills claimed the attention of the Senate, and the clock ran out on
the legislative session before the Senate could perform the
essentially administrative job of voting on the bill. There is no
doubt the Senate would have approved the bill overwhelmingly if a vote
had taken place.

We look forward to this bill becoming law during the next legislative
session.
