HCS/SCS/SB 719 - This act makes changes to the Kansas & Missouri Metropolitan Culture District Compact. The changes to Missouri and Kansas law are identical.
The definition of "cultural activities" is expanded to include sports. The definition of "cultural facilities" is expanded to include facilities used for sports. This act also specifies approved election days for new tax levies with the provision that no new tax levy can be submitted to voters before January 1, 2002. Tax levy votes shall not be exclusively dedicated to sports or sports facilities.
This act expands the membership of the Board of Directors of
the Metropolitan Culture District by two. The two new directors
will be from Wyandotte County, Kansas. The change is necessary
due to recent government consolidations between Kansas City,
Kansas and Wyandotte County which would have resulted in Kansas
losing two seats on the board.
