Second District State Representative Mazzie Christensen of Bethany reported that one bill was sent to the governor this week. This bill would ensure that, for Medicaid reimbursement, no state funds would be directed to abortion facilities or their affiliates, including Planned Parenthood.



Additionally, the Missouri House of Representatives returned a bill to the State Senate this week. This bill pertains to initiative petitions and the process by which items are added to the Missouri Constitution, relating specifically to a concurrent majority requirement.



The legislation has been a point of controversy during this and the previous legislative sessions.

Another bill, which was also sent back to the State Senate, aims to create a Missouri Constitutional Amendment to impose stricter penalties for first-degree sex trafficking.

Missouri would become one of the first states to establish such a Constitutional Amendment. If the bill progresses to the governor, it would subsequently be presented to state voters.

Christensen voted in favor of both bills.
