The Missouri Senate has given first-round approval to legislation that would prohibit the Department of Revenue (DOR) from scanning and storing source documents for driver’s license, conceal-carry, and other applications.
Gov. Jay Nixon is urging renewal of exemptions from Missouri's open records law for security systems of government buildings and policies for responding to terrorism.
The exemptions protecting such information from disclosure expired at the end of 2012.
Nixon has scheduled news conferences on the topic today at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the Missouri State Highway Patrol General Headquarters in Jefferson City. Law enforcement and public school district officials are scheduled to take part.
