(L. 1971 H.B. 472 § 16, A.L. 2022 H.B. 1606 merged with H.B. 1662)

*Revisor's Note:  This section was amended identically by both H.B. 1606 and H.B. 1662, 2022.  In 2023, H.B. 1606 was declared unconstitutional (see annotation below).  The H.B. 1662 language remains in effect.

(2023) The inclusion of Section 67.2300 in H.B. 1606 from 2022 declared unconstitutional as violating the single subject rule of Article III, § 23 of the Missouri Constitution.  The remaining provisions of H.B. 1606 could not be severed and the bill is declared invalid in its entirety.  Byrd, et al. v. State of Missouri, et al., Case No. SC100045 (Mo.banc, Dec. 19, 2023).
