Under the bill, Donations intended for inaugural activites would be subject to the same level of disclosure as campaign contributions.

St. Louis area Representative Barbara Fraser supports the bill, but says she hopes it doesn't change the character of Missouri's inaugural celebrations.

Contents: Expenditures have made our inaugurations very public, I hope this doesn't happen in our state.

This bill does not affect the amount of money that can be spent on inaugural campaigns or how state funds can be used for them. From the state Capitol, I'm Monica Walter.
