JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – KMOX News has learned a controversial child labor bill in the Missouri legislature is “dead”.

MIssouri Senator Jane Cunningham had proposed rolling back many provisions of current law, including what hours a child could work and where.

Cunningham’s office wouldn’t comment on the legislation other than to tell KMOX it’s “not going anywhere”.  Her staffer also refused to comment on whether Cunningham might re-introduce the measure in the future.

The measure gained national attention — even making Jay Leno’s opening monologue.
