Relating to toll-free telephone access to members of the general assembly.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section 1. The chief clerk of the house of representatives and the secretary of the senate
shall collaborate to establish a toll-free telephone number by which citizens of Missouri
may contact, without charge, state representatives and senators of the state of Missouri.
Such toll-free telephone lines shall be staffed by adequate personnel to efficiently manage
incoming calls. Calls to such toll-free telephone number shall be transferred to the state
representative or senator that the caller indicates or, if the caller does not know with whom
he or she wishes to speak, then the operator receiving the call shall determine the caller's
state representative or senator and transfer such call to him or her. The cost of such toll-free telephone number shall be borne equally by the senate and the house of representatives.
