The Missouri Supreme Court is being asked to decide who qualifies to run for the state Legislature when boundaries are changed during redistricting.
Democratic House members Rochelle Walton Gray and Sylvester Taylor each filed to run in the 75th House District in St. Louis County. That district was redrawn last year and includes pieces of both lawmakers' current House districts. Gray lives in the new 75th District, and Taylor does not.
Legislation that would change Missouri’s definition on workplace discrimination is getting attention this week on both sides of the Missouri General Assembly.
On Monday, the House version of the bill was approved by that chamber’s Workforce Development Committee. Under the bill, discrimination would have to be a motivating factor in any action taken against an employee, not a contributing factor as it is now. Democrat Sylvester Taylor of North County voted against the bill in committee.
