Governor Parson Signs SCR 7 & HB 574

Today, Governor Mike Parson signed SCR 7 and HB 574 into law. SCR 7 expresses support for up to $24 million in state funds to support the 2,300 acre East Locust Creek Reservoir project in Sullivan County, sponsored by the North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission. HB 574 prevents third parties from inspecting certain agriculture production facilities. It limits agriculture inspection authority to only those with statutory and regulatory reason to do so, including the Missouri Department of Agriculture, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, United States Department of Agriculture, and county sheriffs. Governor Parson will ceremonially sign SCR 7 in Milan and HB 574 in Trenton later this afternoon.
