JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are advancing an early voting measure that could overlap with an initiative petition tackling the issue.

The competing proposals set up a scenario in which Missouri voters could endorse two early voting periods but see only one become law. Missouri law states that if conflicting constitutional amendments are approved at the same time, the measure that gets the largest affirmative vote takes effect.

The initiative petition would allow early voting for six weeks and require officials to accommodate early voting on Saturday and Sunday for the final 21 days before federal or state elections. The proposal in the Legislature calls for nine days of early voting and depends upon lawmakers approving funding.

Lawmakers look to combat seafood fraud

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — Lawmakers in state capitals and in Washington are working to see that consumers are getting what they think they are getting when buying seafood.

More than 90 percent of America's seafood is imported and mislabeling is rife.

The conservation group Oceana reported last year that 33 percent of the more than 1,200 seafood samples it purchased and tested nationwide were mislabeled. Only seven of the 120 samples of fish purported to be red snapper really were red snapper based on DNA testing.

Lawmakers in states including Maryland and South Carolina have introduced truth in labeling bills.

Criminal code bill boosts penalty for child crimes

Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:29 Published in Local News

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Legislation to reorganize Missouri's criminal laws also would give longer prison stints to people who sexually abuse or abandon children.

Under the bill, incest would carry additional jail time in child sex crimes. Parents who leave their children without proper care could also spend a decade more in jail if a child dies or is seriously injured.

The main focus of the legislation is the creation of additional classes of felonies and misdemeanors. But a child advocate says the increased punishments for crimes against children will have an impact on their lives.

The House and Senate passed the criminal code overhaul this week and must work out differences to pass an identical bill by May 16th, when the session adjourns
