JEFFERSON CITY - More than 200 bills become law Thursday. The bills cover almost every topic, from a new state exercise to implementing new education policy.

The new laws were signed by Governor Jay Nixon and passed by a large Republican majority in both the House and Senate.

Almost all new laws will go into effect on August 28, except those, like the new criminal code, which have a hold on its implementation.

Some new laws going into effect Thursday will add convenience for Missourians. For example, proof of life insurance can now be provided on your phone instead of requiring a paper copy. Also starting Thursday, Missourians will be able to buy single beers from local supermarkets.

Another new law will prohibit the practice of Common Core standards in the state. Other education bills have tax dollars going to preschool education for kids from lower income families.

New laws also focus on new safety procedures, like requiring parental consent before any child under the age of 17 can use a tanning bed.

Other legislation will tighten the restrictions for what reasons people will be able to collect unemployment benefits. For example, people who have committed acts of gross negligence would be prohibited from drawing unemployment benefits.

Missouri lawmakers also passed a bill which would prevent the disruption of funerals, which is legislation aimed at preventing groups like the Westboro Baptist Church from carrying out its protests in Missouri.

Not every bill focused on a serious matter however. Missouri will have a new state exercise starting Thursday, the jumping jack.

More bills may become law after a legislative veto session on September 10.
