Current Bill Summary

SB 808 - This act modifies the provisions relating to the Missouri Women's Council. New missions for the council are added to initiate programs to assist and support women when making the transition from work to home, operating a home-based business, and working part-time from home and to provide information for women to access traditional as well as nontraditional skilled trades. Also, the council is to conduct an inventory of existing federal, state, community, and private programs relating to the economic and employment needs of women and the council is to determine which economic and employment problems exist in specific geographic areas of the state by developing a self-sufficiency standard.

This act repeals sections relating to the council preparing a state plan and report to identify and prioritize targeted populations in terms of employment accessibility and geographic regions. The act also repeals a version of a doubly-enacted section relating to the Friends of the Missouri Women's Council special license plate.
