A Side-by-Side Comparison of the Proposed Bills to Reform Missouri’s HIV Criminal Laws, The Center for HIV Law and Policy (2019)
On December 3, 2018, Missouri State Representatives Tracy McCreery (D-88) and Holly Rehder (R-148) both filed bills proposing changes to Missouri’s HIV criminal laws. On April 15, 2019, a House Committee Substitute (HCS) bill was submitted for a vote to the House Health and Mental Health Policy Committee. The bills attempt to correct problematic features of Missouri’s laws, but they differ in their approach and specific terms. A close examination of each bill is useful to advocates considering different paths to reform HIV criminal exposure statutes in their states.
