Parson signs tort reform legislation

Posted online

Gov. Mike Parson on Wednesday signed four tort reform bills.

One of the bills requires individuals to bring a claim where they live.

“The law signed by Gov. Parson today addresses a major reason why Missouri has annually ranked as having one of the worst legal climates in the nation. Starting today, Missouri will no longer be the nation’s courtroom,” said Daniel Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “This law was years in the making and was one of the business community’s top priorities coming into the 2019 legislative session.”

Parson called the bills "a great step in bringing fairness to our courts."
