The Governor signed:
Senate Bill 58, which clarifies land annexation guidelines for communities and authorizes certain nuisance abatement practices

Senate Bill 35, which authorizes a check-off box on the Missouri tax forms for contributions to the newly created Pediatric Cancer Research Trust Fund.
