Current Bill Summary

SB 284 - Currently, upon approval of the board of aldermen, a fire department employee shall not be required to live within the department boundaries if the only public school district in the area has been unaccredited or provisionally accredited in the last five years of the person's employment. This act removes the need for the board of aldermen's approval.

The act removes the provision allowing the voters of St. Louis City to prevent: 1) the enactment of these provisions in the city, and 2) requiring the employees of the city to forfeit 1% of their salaries in order to reside outside of the city.

This act is identical to a provision of HCS/SB 386 (2009) & HB 416 (2009).
