This wouldn’t be about those really interesting republican presidential caucuses, would it?

Introduced today:

SECOND REGULAR SESSION

HOUSE BILL NO. 2031

96TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVES FLANIGAN (Sponsor) AND ALLEN (Co-sponsor).

6256L.01I                                        D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk

AN ACT

To repeal sections 115.123 and 115.755, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof two new sections relating to presidential primaries.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

[….]

2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 1 of this section, an election for a presidential primary held pursuant to sections 115.755 to 115.785 shall be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in [March] February of each presidential election year.

[….]

2. The results of the presidential preference primary conducted under this section shall bind each party delegate on a first vote at the national party convention, and shall take precedence over any result of any presidential preference caucus.

Rick Rantorum (r) would be sitting pretty if this bill had passed a year ago.
