Missouri Action Steps

Two bills have been introduced in the Missouri legislature in 2014 to push back against warrantless mass surveillance. SJR27 is a proposal to amendment the state constitution, banning the use of such information in state courts. HB1388 bans obtaining location information of an electronic device without warrant.

SJR27 STATUS – 02-10-14, Passed out of committee and sent to the Senate floor.
The senate will have 2 votes on this bill. First, with debate for “perfection.” The 2nd will be a final vote to send it to the house.

HB1388 STATUS – 03-13-14 – Passed House, 134-13

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. It doesn’t matter where in Missouri you live, take these actions today.

1. Call your state senator. Strongly, but respectfully let them know that you’d like to see a YES vote on HB1388. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why.  If they remain undecided, let them know you’ll call back soon to follow up.
