Legislation Of Interest To Missouri Seniors

Although many important bills of great importance to seniors did not survive debate in this year’s session of the Missouri Legislature, some items were truly agreed to and await the Governor’s signature. Here are a few of the items that have a direct bearing on senior health and senior-specific programs:

HB 1635 Bernskoetter Modifies provisions relating to mandated abuse and neglect reporting in long-term care facilities
HB 1625 Morris Establishes the Missouri Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program
