State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the U.S. legislation, University City Patch reported.
Clayton High School graduate Maria Chappelle-Nadal is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Title IX legislation that prohibits exclusion from educational activities on the basis of gender, University City Patch reported. Chappelle-Nadal is a Missouri state senator representing University City. Quoting from her column on University City Patch: "The law is one of the most important civil rights successes in American education because it opened the door for young women to be included in the same activities as men. Other than the constitutional right to vote, no other piece of legislation has had a greater impact on the lives of women."

A bipartisan commission's decision places part of Clayton in the Democratic state senator's district.
As predicted last week, a bipartisan commission has given final approval to a Missouri state Senate map, and it will have implications for Clayton. It also means boundaries for state Senate districts are final, giving a bit of certainty to candidates seeking to serve in the Missouri General Assembly’s upper chambers. Commissioners made minor tweaks to the tentative proposal, as noted in a St. Louis Beacon article. The biggest changes? Placing more of Clayton in the 4th District—which is represented by Sen. Joe Keaveny (D-St. Louis)—along with making minor adjustments to the boundary between the 13th and 14th Senate districts. In the tentative map, the entire city was placed in the 14th District. Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University …

Plus, realignment of Missouri Senate district boundaries has again ruffled feathers, and Republican candidates for treasurer and governor have picked up supporters.
File this under “almost missed:” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University City), a Clayton High School graduate, filed a bill earlier this month to make St. Louis Brewery and Boulevard Brewing Company the state’s official breweries.

The company’s Bottleworks location is a hot spot just down the street from Richmond Heights in Maplewood, while the Tap House is a fixture in St. Louis city. The bill, by the way, was referred to the Senate Commerce, Consumer Protection, Energy and the Environment Committee.

Sen. John Lamping (R-St. Louis County) has been representing the cities.
Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University City), a Clayton High School graduate, confirmed Wednesday that she will be the new representative for Clayton and Richmond Heights in the Missouri Senate. She will continue to represent University City. Her district has just expanded to include Clayton and Richmond Heights. Sen. John Lamping (R-St. Louis County) has been the representative for the cities since his election last year.

New maps for both the state Senate and House of Representatives have been submitted to the secretary of state by the commission. "We have …

Even a Tuesday night hearing on urban agriculture couldn't escape a reference to the Cardinals-Phillies contest happening just a few miles down the highway in St. Louis City. Daryl Duwe, who spoke during the event at Maplewood Richmond Heights High School, ended his testimony by telling legislators that the hearing was "much more interesting than a scoreless baseball game." The comment prompted laughter in the room. Later, Rep. Jason Holsman (D-Kansas City) made another reference as he tried to move along the audience comment portion of the meeting so legislators could return home. "He's at the plate, she's on deck," said Holsman, who chairs the Joint Committee on Urban Agriculture. Throughout the night, Missouri state senators and …
