Schroer has filed eight bills during the Legislature’s current special session on violent crime, including some proposals backed by Gov. Mike Parson.
Among the legislation he is sponsoring is a bill scrapping St. Louis’ residency requirement for first responders.
In the past, he successfully helped push through one of the country’s most restrictive abortion laws, which is held up in federal court. He also led an unsuccessful attempt last year to curtail the Sunshine Law.
