Current Bill Summary


SB 481 - Current law provides that the authority for certain administrative commissions to hear appeals shall be transferred to the Administrative Hearing Commission (AHC), however, the authority to make final decisions after a hearing on appeals by the AHC shall remain with the enumerated commissions. This act provides that the administrative commissions enumerated in this act may render final decisions after hearing or through stipulation, consent order, agreed settlement, or by disposition similar to a default judgment, judgement on the pleadings, or summary determination.

The act also provides that if a person aggrieved by any decision for which authority to hear appeals was transferred to the AHC files a petition for appeal, the AHC may hold hearings or may make recommended decisions by stipulation of the parties, consent order, agreed settlement, or by disposition similar to a default judgment, judgement on the pleadings, or summary determination.

The act also gives authority to the AHC to hear certain environmental appeals, as described in section 621.250, RSMO.

This act is identical to HB 526 (2007).
