Joint Committee on Legislative Research

Committee Purpose

The Joint Committee on Legislative Research, created under Article III, Section 35, Constitution of Missouri, is directed by statute to provide a variety of services for the General Assembly and its members.

The committee's offices and staff are divided into two divisions, the Research Division/Revisor of Statutes and an Oversight Division. The committee also operates and maintains a legislative reference library. The committee itself is a nonpartisan committee, and is not a policy-making group and formulates no legislative program. Its staff renders only such technical and professional assistance as may be requested by the General Assembly or any of its members, or as required by statute.

The Revisor of Statutes publishes the Revised Statutes of Missouri and subsequent supplements, and Session Laws of Missouri.
