UPDATE: Senior Growth & Development Program Bill Perfected In House

HB 337 (The Senior Growth and Development Program), was perfected on the floor of the Missouri House of Representatives today, and, if passed, by the house, will move on to the Senate for debate. If you have an opinion about this important legislation, now is the time to reach out to your state legislators, urging their support, and helping them with information so they can discuss the benefits of this bill.

Attached is some material that might help. Similar legislation has been proposed in the past, but this year, we have a new group of legislators, a new Governor and a new Lt. Governor – all of whom have indicated support for issues affecting seniors in Missouri.

Here are links to information that can help you – and your representatives – evaluate and debate this legislation on its merits.
