Representative Peggy McGaugh of Carrollton has filed an election integrity bill for this year’s session. The bill comes on the heels of an omnibus elections bill that was bogged down in the Senate last year. McGaugh says she’s optimistic that her bill will cross the finish line this year.

McGaugh adds she has a new senate sponsor this year to help guide the bill through that chamber.

McGaugh is the Vice-Chair of the Missouri House Elections and Elected Officials Committee.
