Strongly, but respectfully urge them to cosponsor and support HB264. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email, so make sure to take a few minutes to call.

In fact, those who lobby most aggressively against our work are government organizations (like law enforcement groups) and corporate interest groups (like a local chamber of commerce)

With a 75 percent YES vote, Missourians approved Amendment 9 in 2014 giving “electronic data and communications” the same state constitutional protections as “persons, homes, papers and effects.” This eliminates any constitutional ambiguity surrounding electronic data and specifically bars state agencies from accessing it without a warrant in most cases.
