Laws and Regulations, etc.

The Missouri Revised Statutes show all laws passed by the Missouri legislature that were in effect as of the book's publication date. If you wish to see a law the way it looked when it was originally passed (that is, unchanged by later amendments), use Session Laws volumes instead. If you are unable to find your topic discussed in the statutes, you may be dealing with an area covered by state regulations instead. If that is the case, check the Missouri Code of State Regulations. Finally, some legal requirements are handled in the state Constitution (see below.)


Missouri Constitution

Current Missouri Constitution (revised May 2015.)  Missouri has operated under four successive constitutions, enacted in 1820, 1865, 1875 and 1945.  The constitution is continually revised through amendments, and the text of amendments can be found in Session Laws.  Find the full Constitution printed in editions of the Missouri Revised Statutes.
