Court Stays Decision Declaring Portions of Senate Bill 844 Unconstitutional
The Cole County Circuit Court has stayed the court’s previous judgment holding the portion of Senate Bill 844 relating to campaign finance unconstitutional.
The stay does not apply to Missouri Revised Statutes section 130.031(13), covering who may contribute to a political action committee.
The stay order allows all provisions of law, including those enacted into law by Senate Bill 844 (except for section 130.031(13)), to remain in effect until a final resolution of the case on appeal.
