Just a day before his deadline to sign or veto bills on his desk, Nixon signed legislation to provide a review of state administrative rules every five years, as well as legislation to repeal provisions of law regarding unfunded and obsolete programs.
"These three bills will keep Missouri on that same track by requiring regular review of administrative rules, and by cleaning up our statutes through the removal of laws that pertain to obsolete programs," he said.
The bills were Senate Bill 469, House Bill 1135, and House Bill 1608
Nixon said his administration has made efforts to increase effectiveness of government by greater use of technology, fewer state vehicles, and less boards and commissions.
Nixon has until Saturday to act on the remaining bills on his desk.
