Missouri House Committee OKs Presidential Primary Bill

The Missouri House Elections Committee today unanimously designated HB 3 do pass, sending the special session legislation to the Rules Committee to be placed on the floor calendar. By a 10-0 vote, the committee members advanced the bill to move the Show Me state presidential primary from February 7 to March 6 on the 2012 presidential primary calendar. There appears to be bipartisan support behind the idea of moving the Missouri primary to the later (relative to 2008) March Super Tuesday.

The Rules Committee has no hearings scheduled at this time.
