At 1 p.m. Friday, April 29, Governor Nixon will visit the Old Courthouse in St. Louis to veto Senate Bill 188, the Governor’s Office reports.
“Unless vetoed, the bill would undermine key provisions of the Missouri Human Rights Act, rolling back decades of progress in protecting civil rights,” the release says. “This bill would make it harder to prove discrimination in the workplace, and would throw new hurdles in the path of those whose rights have been violated,” Nixon says. “That is unacceptable.”
The Governor’s announcement will take place on the Broadway side of the Old Courthouse. Broadway will be closed from Chestnut to Market for this event to accommodate the audience and parking for individuals with disabilities.
