Rep. Ellington usually votes for pro-choice and pro-women legislation, but could improve in his record. If you live in Rep. Ellington’s district, be sure to urge him to vote YES on pro-choice legislation!
Not only did Rep. Ellington vote with women in 2018, he introduced two bills that would have had a positive impact on women across the state. He introduced HB 1784, which would have raised the minimum wage to a living wage of $15, and HB 2190, which would have prohibited employers from discriminating in providing compensation based on gender for the same work. Unfortunately, the Missouri Legislature did not allow these bills to move very far this year.
