Teen Driver Bill
The legislation has been backed by the Missouri PTA and by many insurance companies, that already offer insurance discounts for completion of similar programs. One option for the driver's education program would be an online course, that students could access 24 hours a day.
"I've taken two teenagers through teaching them to drive already and just having the support of having a curriculum out there online is going to be very instrumental to me guide my student through," Baker said. "I've got one more, and I'll be helping that person and hopefully this will be in place by then."
Some of the criticism about the legislation has been the potential cost to the state and individuals, but Baker is confident the benefits outweigh the costs.
