A notice and opportunity to repair (NOR) bill that passed the House and Senate in Missouri was successfully vetoed this year by Gov. Bob Holden. Gov. Holden's veto was upheld when an override attempt in mid-September fell short by two votes in the state Senate, effectively killing the bill for the year. The NOR bill would have required homeowners to notify a builder of an alleged defect before filing a lawsuit. A state Senate source expects NOR proponents to reintroduce the bill when the General Assembly reconvenes in January.
