Statement from Gov. Nixon on House Bill 1307

May 15, 2014
Jefferson City, MO

Gov. Jay Nixon today issued the following statement on House Bill 1307:

“House Bill 1307 will get the same comprehensive review given to all bills that reach my desk.  However, it is clear that by failing to include an exception for rape and incest, this extreme proposal would separate Missouri from all but one other state in the nation.  I have profound concerns about its impact on women and especially the victims of these heinous crimes.”
