Kander Statement on House Passage of HCS HB Nos. 48 & 216
Jefferson City, MO — Secretary of State Jason Kander today released the following statement on the Missouri House of Representatives’ passage of House Committee Substitute for House Bills 48 & 216:
“I am disappointed that the Missouri House decided to once again pass an overly restrictive piece of legislation that would disenfranchise thousands of eligible Missourians. Throughout the process this year, even supporters of this legislation admitted there has not been a reported case of voter impersonation fraud in our state,” Kander said. “Instead of spending time working on solutions for a problem that might not even exist, I ask the Senate to put aside the House’s legislation and work on a bill to take on the true fraud in our elections, our campaign finance laws. We are the only state in the nation that has the combination of allowing unlimited campaign contributions and unlimited lobbyist gifts. There is bipartisan agreement in the Senate to take on this issue, so I hope they get to work to end that unfortunate distinction.”
