Governor Parson Replaces the State’s Current State of Emergency With More Targeted One


Governor Mike Parson has terminated the executive order that established the current state of emergency that began on March 13, 2020. Officials with the governor’s office say this new executive order the new executive order established a more ”targeted State of Emergency declaration.”This would allow state agencies to request a waiver to prevent statutes and regulations from hindering their operations. This new order scales back the number of waivers in effect. Statutory or regulatory waivers approved during the prior executive order which are still in place as of the start of the new order will still be in place. The order activates the Missouri National Guard for continued mission support in recovery operations. New waivers will be aimed at supporting the state’s health care system.
