Rep. Jason Grill Files Legislative Package for 2009 Session

Grill’s 25 pieces of legislation cover issues ranging from education and consumer protection to health care and tax reform

Jefferson City –Representative Jason Grill, D-Parkville, recently announced the package of legislation he has filed for the 2009 legislative session. In total, Rep. Grill has filed 25 pieces of legislation covering a wide range of issues including education, consumer protection, health care, job creation, economic development, transportation, elections, sports, and tax reform.

“We’ve opened the session with an emphasis on bipartisanship so I am hopeful the House will give serious consideration to the bills I am sponsoring. These are all common sense issues that I am confident members from both sides of the aisle can find common ground on as we work deeper into the legislative session,” said Rep. Grill. “Whether it’s by protecting Missourian consumers, improving the quality of education in our state, creating jobs, implementing election and tax reforms, or by promoting healthy lifestyles and well being; my legislative package is focused on addressing some of the issues that matter most to Missourians. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House on this important legislation.”

The bills filed by Rep. Grill now await assignment to committee for further discussion.
