New Missouri laws went into effect on August 28
Legislation passed in 2017 by the Missouri General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Eric Greitens took effect August 28. MCADSV's publication, New 2017 Missouri Law, details the provisions in different areas of law most of interest to advocates working to prevent and end domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking, human trafficking and harassment.

A hard copy of the publication has been mailed to all MCADSV members. For more details about the specific bills and how they were developed throughout the course of the legislative session, see the 2017 monthly Legislative Updates on our Public Policy page under the "Changing Laws" tab.
Jennifer Carter Dochler, MCADSV Public Policy Director, will provide the annual Developments in the Law trainings at upcoming MCADSV regional meetings. These trainings will present key highlights from the 2017 legislative session, including dynamics that affected bills, budget priorities, and, importantly, the impact of new laws on the lives of survivors and the work of advocates throughout Missouri.

If you have any questions about the new laws, contact Jennifer at jennc@mocadsv.org or 573-634-4161, ext. 101. You also can call the MCADSV office at 573-634-4161.
