Politics

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Governor Mike Parson will sign a bill Tuesday limiting future emergency health orders.

Republican lawmakers approved the limits in reaction to COVID restrictions imposed by St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page and others.

Under the new law, officials could only issue health orders for up to 30 days. After that, county government would have to vote on whether to keep them in place.
