A Senate committee began hearings on Mon. Jan. 25, on two bills that would affect protests and policing in the state.

Senate Bill 60 would create more accountability for police officers. It bans the use of chokeholds, increases penalties for sexual misconduct in the police force, and limits the use of chemical agents. 

Senator Brian Williams sponsored the bill, which drew support from leaders throughout the state, including organizations like the Fraternal Order of the Police and the Missouri NAACP.

 Over the past week, new tiers of Missouri’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan have been activated, making an additional 2.5 million Missourians eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. However, supplies are lagging behind demand. 

 Governor Mike Parson attributed the limited vaccine supply to the slow distribution rate of vaccines. The state is still getting 76,000 doses delivered for this week and the same amount by the end of next week.
