This is very encouraging! Hopefully, it will make it through the Senate and the Governor signs it into law. It had massive bi-partisan support in the House.

We've chatted many times here about investing where your money is treated well. Missouri just took another step toward proving we treat real estate investors and landlords well!


(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.) The Missouri House of Representatives announced on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, that they passed House Bill 2062 this week which addresses evictions.

HB 2062 was sponsored by State Representative Chris Brown and was passed with 111 votes for and 26 votes against.

HB 2062, according to a media release from the House, "Seeks to prohibit counties, municipalities, or political subdivisions from implementing eviction moratoriums unless explicitly allowed by state law."

According to the release, "The legislation aims to address concerns raised by supporters who argue that eviction moratoriums infringe on property rights and disrupt contracts between landlords and tenants, emphasizing that eviction is governed by state law."

Representative Brown said, "The goal of this legislation is not to force renters out but rather to establish a uniform rule applicable to all in the state."

According to the Missouri House of Representatives, this issue with Federal Moratoriums began during the Covid-19 Pandemic when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) implemented it.

The United States Supreme Court made the Federal Moratorium from the CDC invalid in 2021 after which time St. Louis and St. Louis County implemented their own local eviction moratoriums which affected landlords and property owners who were still obligated to pay costs and taxes with no legal rights to evict delinquent renters.

House Speaker Dean Plocher said, "This legislation reflects out commitment to push back against the federal overreach during the pandemic that affected all our lives."

"This legislation supports Missourians' constitutional rights to petition the government and ensures that our communities will be subject to the laws of Missouri, and not the whims of a federal bureaucrat," Plocher said.

HB 2062 still has to go through the Missouri Senate but Representative Brown has expressed that he is "committed to addressing the complexities of housing policies for the greater benefit of all Missourians."

I wish this was contagious and adopted by all states.

Needs to go federally

Wonderful news as long as someone in charge at the state level doesn't decide to toss a wrench into the gears.

I will make plans to copy this and send it to my state reps... just to see if they care enough to do something similar. --107.147.xx.xx

But contact Senators to remove the 'Unless explicity allowed by state law." That's a weasel clause they probably had to add to get liberal support. It negates the whole thing.
