How did the State Historical Society of Missouri become charged with leading the Missouri 2021 Bicentennial Celebrations?

The 97th Missouri General Assembly, during its First Regular Session in 2013, issued House Concurrent Resolution 7 (HCR7). It tasked the State Historical Society of Missouri with developing "plans, ideas, and proposals to commemorate and celebrate" the Missouri Bicentennial and providing "guidance and direction to a statewide effort to promote and celebrate the State of Missouri’s rich and complex history."
