Progress Missouri v. Missouri Senate

Our democracy works best when there is transparency and accountability, and the Sunshine Law is a necessary tool to maintain both. Unfortunately, some state senators, including Mike Parson, Mike Kehoe and David Sater think the Sunshine Law doesn't apply to them.

We've filed complaints and sent letters through our attorney addressing this matter. Missouri state senators helped write the Sunshine Law. It's time for them to start complying with it, so we're suing.

Below you can find the latest documents in our case. Friday, June 19th there will be a court hearing in Cole County, stay tuned.
