A group of black lawmakers in Missouri has pledged to fight efforts by Republicans to revise state labor laws to make it more difficult for workers to prove discrimination claims.

Members of the Legislative Black Caucus say the legislation would roll back decades of civil rights advances and protect wrongdoers by limiting the amount of damages that can be claimed in cases where discrimination is proved, The Kansas City Star reports.
