Child safety bills

Three bills in the Missouri legislature, all concerned with child safety, received attention in public hearings Monday.

HB 1792 would add terrorist threats and statutory rape to the list of offenses that must be reported by school officials.

HB 1656 would require new mandatory suicide prevention training for all public school teachers.

HB 2388 would broaden pre-existing concussion awareness mandates to encompass both school-sponsored and community-organized youth athletic events.
