To amend chapter 9, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the designation of
Rosa Parks Day in Missouri.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 9, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be
known as section 9.163, to read as follows:
9.163. The governor shall issue annually a proclamation setting apart the fourth
day of February as "Rosa Parks Day" and recommending to the people of the state that
the day be appropriately observed in honor of and out of respect for Rosa Parks, an
African American woman who refused to give up her bus seat to a white man, an act of
defiance that opened a decisive chapter in the civil rights movement in the United States.
