Several new MO laws take effect today

   Dozens of new laws take affect in Missouri today.  Among them is the new carry conceal permit law, which shifts the process of issuing permits to county sheriff's departments and away from the state Department of Revenue.

   Other new laws on the books today will hike the fines for passing or speeding in emergency zones on highways, allow drivers to show proof of insurance using their smartphones and tablets, and let cities decide if they want to allow ATVs on their streets.

   There's a new law encouraging Missouri schools to teach first-graders the National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program. 

   And another that requires scrap metal dealers to keep records of transactions involving catalytic converters.

NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) - The former office manager for the New Madrid County Sheriff's Department in southeast Missouri is facing theft charges.

Authorities on Wednesday announced that Deborah L. Cowan is accused of stealing property or service worth more than $25,000. Police have not detailed what was allegedly stolen.

Cowan is free on bond and due in court for a hearing on Aug. 8. She was office manager for the sheriff's department for 20 years.

The charges follow an investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol at the request of Sheriff Terry Stevens.
