Summary of the Introduced Bill

HJR 23 -- Impeachment Trials

Sponsor:  Emery

This proposed constitutional amendment requires, upon voter
approval, impeachments to by tried by the Senate.   If the
Governor is to be tried, the Chief Justice of the Missouri
Supreme Court will preside.  No person will be convicted without
a two-thirds vote by all senators present.  Currently,
impeachments are tried before the Missouri Supreme Court or a
special commission of seven jurists selected by the Senate.
