Missouri State Capitol
Patrick Ishmael

It's August 28th, and for policy nerds -- and especially taxpayers -- this is an important day. Today is the day that most of the bills passed in the regular session are becoming law, which depending on your perspective and depending on the legislation, could be a great or terrible thing. Missourinet has an excellent rundown of some of the higher profile bills now in effect, and Marshall Griffin also has another excellent summary, with links, at the St. Louis Public Radio website. Check them both out to get a flavor of what is changing.
