Call to Action: Senate Bill 63

Here we go again! 

The 75% vote for Amendment 9 last August was a clear statement by Missourians that they want their personal information to be protected.
It doesn't look like the Missouri Senate Transportation, Infrastructure, and Public Safety Committee got the message, since they are about to give the first round of approval to Senate Bill 63, which sets up a government database to store the personal information of all people who buy certain prescription drugs.  Once this committee votes "Do Pass,” the bill will go on to the full Senate for their approval.

I have no idea why or how this bill got as far as it has! Why in the world would we trust the state government with ANY of our personal information after the Department of Revenue illegally released the personal data of 163,000 conceal carry permit holders. Oops…  

They are promising that Missouri's Prescription Drug Monitoring Database bill will not permit the release of "personally identifiable data,” but other states made that same promise at first, too, and are now in the process of reneging on that promise. Surprise!! (not)

Look at the way our personal information is being misused now. Not to mention all the “hacking” incidents that happen to data bases. What’s not to trust….

Senator Brian Munzlinger  sits on this committee, he needs to hear from you to vote this bad bill down early in the process. The date isn’t set for certain yet but as early as March 11 the committee will be voting.  Unfortunately, it looks like nearly the entire committee supports SB 63 at this time.   

PLEASE call or email Senator Munzlinger and ask him to represent you with a NO vote.

1) Ask how he intends to vote on SB63, the Prescription Drug Monitoring Database bill in committee.  
2) Let him know that you stand with the 75% who voted to protect personal data last August 5th.

Senator Brian Munzlinger
(573) 751-7985

Transportation, Infrastructure, and Public Safety Committee
With no set date on the vote we need to communicate with our Senator as quickly as possible. Please write or call first thing this week.
