Bill proposed to make the ‘high five’ Missouri’s official state greeting

Politicians are known for lots of hand shakes and kissing babies, but this Missouri State Representative will likely become known for the “high five”.

Courtney Allen Curtis, (D) District 73, introduced a bill to the Missouri House of Representatives that would make the high five the official state greeting.

Yes, that’s right, an official state greeting.

HB 1624 reads: “The “high five” is selected for and shall be known as the official state greeting in the state of Missouri.”

The bill has already had a second reading. Curtis’ district covers parts of north St. Louis County, including Lambert Airport, and parts of Hazelwood, Ferguson, Berkeley, Bridgeton and St. Ann. This is his first term. He was elected in 2012.
