In 1949, the General Assembly delegated the authority to the committee to prepare and publish the Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo). To assist the committee with this responsibility, the General Assembly also directed the committee to appoint the Revisor of Statutes and the committee staff.

-Provide a website for electronic delivery of the statutes to the general public;

-Assign statute numbers and arrange statutes in accordance with the numbering system adopted for organizing the Revised Statutes;

-Provide annual publications of the Session Laws of Missouri after each regular and any extraordinary session of the General Assembly;

-Prepare revision bills for introduction in the General Assembly to revise and correct issues or problems that exist in the Revised Statutes;

-Prepare an annual report listing laws that expire, sunset, terminate, or become ineffective;

-Review legislation to identify potential conflicts in bills as they progress toward passage;
