From ASUM to you, we hope everyone who has been celebrating a happy holiday season, and to everyone a relaxing, fulfilling winter break. We are all very excited for the coming legislative session, which will commence one short week away on January 3. Our intern team is gearing up, learning about their assigned lawmakers and developing a mastery of our platform issues, which you can learn more about this year.
We’re very pleased with the progress made so far. Two of our bills (mental health standards & consent education requirements) have already been filed in the Missouri Senate, and we have every expectation of having the remainder of our platforms filed quickly after the start of session. We appreciate your continued support and encourage you to get involved by signing up for our Annual Advocacy Day, which will be held on March 6, 2018!
