Gov. Mike Parson signed a bill into law Tuesday that places limits on local health officials' ability to issue extended orders such as those seen in the coronavirus pandemic.
Parson said the law was the consequence of health officials' overreach. Many of the orders severely limited the amount and type of business that could be conducted in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Opponents of the law say health officials are best suited to determine what restrictions should be in place and for how long.
