SB 564 - This act re-establishes the Missouri-St. Louis Metropolitan Airport Authority. The new airport authority would assume the governance of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Nothing in the bill will change ownership or financial accountability of the airport. The financial and accounting functions will remain with the City of St. Louis and any profit from the operation of the airport will also flow to the City.
The Governor will appoint the members of the authority upon recommendations from the local chief executive. Members will require the advice and consent of the Senate. Members will be as follows: ten from the City of St. Louis, five from St. Louis County, two from St. Charles County, one from Jefferson County and one additional member may be chosen by the chair from another state. The members of the authority shall annually elect their chair on a biennial basis. Members shall serve staggered terms of four years. The act also removes the restriction against members of the authority being employed in the aeronautics industry.
This act is similar to SCS/SB 1046 (2002).
This act has an effective date.
