Current Bill Summary

SB 165 - This act increases the number of members of the Missouri Minority Business Advocacy Commission from nine to eleven. The new members shall include two minority members from the House of Representatives to be appointed by the Speaker of the House and two minority members from the Senate to be appointed by President Pro Tem. The act also provides for one representative of labor and one representative of a non-minority business to serve on the commission.

This act removes language granting sole authority to the Office of Administration and the Department of Economic Development in developing a financial plan and implements new language allowing them to assist the Commission in the development of a financial plan.

This act states that the plan will be compatible with the state disparity study of 1997 and will be submitted to the Governor and General Assembly by July, 2006, and biennially thereafter.

This act moves the authority of the commission from Chapter 33, RSMo, State Financial Administration, to Chapter 37 RSMo, Office of Administration.

This act is substantially similar to HB 2187 (2002).
