JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KSDK) - Dozens of new laws take effect Wednesday in Missouri, dealing a whole host of issues.
One of those laws now encourages school districts across Missouri to teach the NRA's Eddie Eagle Gun Safety program to first graders.
Eddie Eagle teaches kids what to do if they find a gun.
The new law does not require schools to teach the program, but makes it optional.
Another new law allows Missouri drivers to show proof of insurance on their smart phone or tablet. That means no more paper copies, although you can still use them if you want.
Now, if you get pulled over all you need is a digital copy of your insurance card.
