Hands Up, Missouri! The High-Five May Soon Be The Official State Greeting
A freshman state representative from the St. Louis area has introduced a bill in the House that would make the high-five the official greeting in the state of Missouri.
Democratic Rep. Courtney Allen Curtis, of Berkeley, introduced House Bill 1624 earlier this week.
Curtis told Fox 4 he regularly gives high-fives on the House floor to "promote a friendly environment." He also said he sees it as a way to reduce tensions and feel connected so legislators can do the work of the state.
There are no hearings currently scheduled on the bill.
