January 27, 2023 - GREAT NEWS! A Senate Joint Resolution, SJR-17, has been introduced. It proposes a Constitutional Amendment for the State that restricts voting to CITIZENS only and it BANS the State from joining the NPV Compact scheme!
January 19, 2023 - Peter Meredith, D-Jefferson City, introduced his National Popular Vote scheme bill for the current session. He is the only Sponsor.
The Bill is HB-997. Another identical NPV bill, HB-829, has also been introduced - it has been sponsored by Democrat Ian Mackey.
January 6, 2022 - A lone Democrat, Ian Mackey, D-Clayton, has pre-filed the 5th National Popular Vote bill in 12 months in the Missouri House. The previous 4 bills have all been declared to be dead.
February 2021 - Rep John Simmons, R-109th, has introduced House Joint Resolution 52 which proposes a Constitutional Amendment that will ban Missouri from participating n the National Popular Vote and similar schemes! WE SUPPORT Rep Simmons and his efforts to preserve the Electoral College!
In January, Rep. Peter Meredith, D-80th, has introduced the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme in the Missouri House of Representatives, HB-267. It had its 2nd reading already on 01/07/2021.
On 12/29/2020, Rep Ian Mackey, D-87th, introduced a DUPLICATE Bill to get Missouri to join the diabolical National Popular Vote scheme. This Bill could well be a decoy to draw attention away from HB-267. It has already had its 2nd reading on 01/07/2021.
ALSO, Senator Jill Schupp, D-24th, introduced the NPVIC Bill in the Senate. It had its first reading on 01/06/2021.
We expect a big push in early 2021 to get this dangerous Compact passed through the full Missouri Legislature.
In the last Session, the three identical House Bills - the NPVIC is hedging its bets by putting THREE horses in the race - all were allowed to die as the Assembly adjourned "Sine Die" at the end of its Session.
Missouri is currently classified as a Low-Risk State, although we are closely watching for any movement on this devious legislation.
