After passing through the Missouri House of Representatives with a vote of 129-20, the Cronkite New Voices Act will go to a hearing with the Missouri State Senate Education Committee on March 27. TKC Editor-in-Chief, Camille Baker, and Adviser, Mitch Eden, will both be traveling to Jefferson City to testify in favor of the bill.

After the hearing, the bill will move on to the Senate floor in hopes of it becoming Law. This is the third year the bill has made it to the education committee hearing, but has failed to be voted on in years prior. Currently 14 states have passed similar laws, while Missouri looks to add to that number. TKC will update on the status of the bill as information becomes available.
