4258L.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To repeal section 311.298, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to sale of liquor, with an emergency clause.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 311.298, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 311.298, to read as follows:
311.298. When January first, February fourteenth, March seventeenth, July fourth, or December thirty-first falls on Sunday, and on the Sundays prior to Memorial Day and Labor Day and on the Sunday on which the national championship game of the national football league is played, commonly known as "Super Bowl Sunday", any person having a license to sell intoxicating liquor by the drink may be open for business and sell intoxicating liquor by the drink under the provisions of his license on that day from the time and until the time which would be lawful on another day of the week, notwithstanding any provisions of section 311.290 or any other provision of law to the contrary.
Section B. Because immediate action is necessary to allow for the sale of liquor on February fourteenth, which falls on a Sunday this year, section A of this act is deemed necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health, welfare, peace, and safety, and is hereby declared to be an emergency act within the meaning of the constitution, and section A of this act shall be in full force and effect upon its passage and approval.
