Governor Jay Nixon vetoed a bill Friday on workplace discrimination laws, saying it would scale back protections that took decades to gain.
The Democrat took the action outside St. Louis’ Old Courthouse, where the famous Dred Scott case was tried.
The bill requires workers who claim discrimination in wrongful firing lawsuits to prove that bias was a "motivating" factor, not just a "contributing" factor as the law now states.
Nixon said it would be a step backwards.
