Lawmakers Continue To Rewrite State Criminal Code

JEFFERSON CITY

Despite some reservations from Governor Jay Nixon, State Lawmakers continue to work toward rewriting Missouri’s Criminal Code.  Nixon has suggested that the rewrite be broken into sections and passed that way rather than as one bill because of its current length as it stands right now, the rewrite of Missouri’s Criminal Code is over one thousand pages in length in the house version and over 700 pages in the senate version.  The Governor is reportedly concerned about the size of the bill and that mistakes could be made.  Lawmakers say they’re looking at all options and are still hopeful the legislation can be passed this year.
