Missouri's House has passed its first bill of the legislative session.

And it could keep some people in the dark.

Sara Lane has the story from Jefferson City.

The bill allows drivers to tint a vehicle's front side windows to 35-percent light transmission.

And people with serious medical conditions can tint their windows even more.

Representative Carson Ross from Kansas City says this bill fixes problems from the old legislation.

Contents: Ross says he hopes the bill will be passed in the Senate as quickly as it went through the House, so that the people who have been suffering will be helped.

The bill was passed with an emergency clause, meaning it goes into effect when the governor signs it.


The state House's first bill of the legislative session passed Wednesday morning.

It allows drivers to tint their front driver's side and passenger's side windows.

The bill allows tinting front-side windows to 35-percent light transmission, and even darker tinting for people with severe medical conditions.

That fixes one problem from the old legislation.

Bill sponsor Pat O'Connor from St. Louis County explains another fix to the representatives.

The bill must now pass the Senate, and be signed by the Governor.

Because of an emergency clause, the bill will take affect as soon as the governor signs it, instead of August 28th, like most bills.


The state house has passed its first bill of the legislative session, and Missourians who can't stand the sun when they drive may soon have relief.

The House rushed through a bill to allow tinting of front-side vehicle windows.

It passed Wednesday by a near-unanimous vote.

The House was correcting a mistake it made last year by not allowing those with serious medical conditions to tint their windows.

Representative John Griesheimer questioned Sponsor Pat O'Connor on the House floor.
