Gracious God, our lives are planted in You and there we have found a source of nourishment which sustains us from day to day. Our lives are rooted deeply and firmly in Your promises which provide strength, assurance and final victory. And like a tree planted near a river we desire to bring forth fruits of our efforts here in the Senate. We pray that the product of our efforts will not wither but aid the people of Missouri. And so we pray, keep us firmly rooted in Your Word. Amen.

9. Instructional programs developed pursuant to this section which are transmitted one way through the airwaves or by cable television shall be available to all residents of this state without charge or fee to the extent permitted by the Missouri Constitution. "Without charge or fee" shall not require the providing of equipment to transmit or receive telecommunications instruction or the providing of commercial cable television service. If the instructional program involves two-way, interactive communication between the instructor and the participant, the district or institution operating the program may prescribe academic prerequisites and limit the number of persons who may enroll in the specific program and give preference to residents of the district or institutional attendance area who are age twenty-one or younger but shall not discriminate against any resident on any other basis. A fee may be charged which shall be paid directly by the individual participant, but the fee shall be equal for all participants.

REMONSTRANCES

Senator Ehlmann offered the following remonstrance, which was referred to the Committee on Rules, Joint Rules and Resolutions:

SENATE REMONSTRANCE NO. 4

WHEREAS, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), the most popular oxygen fuel additive, has been shown to cause risk to the nation's drinking water supply; and

WHEREAS, reformulated motor fuel most often achieves the federal requirement for "oxygenated" components through inclusion of a substantial increase in the amount of methyl tertiary-butyl ether or MTBE; and

WHEREAS, motor fuels are often leaked into the ground surrounding a fuel station by leakage from underground storage tanks or splashing losses; and

WHEREAS, MTBE is more water-soluble than components in conventional gasoline and is transported much more readily into aquifers used for drinking water supplies; and

WHEREAS, the General Assembly lifted the ban on reformulated gasoline in 1998 and thus gave Governor Mel Carnahan the discretion to require reformulated gasoline in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, Governor Mel Carnahan sent a letter of notification to the Administrator of the United State Environmental Protection Agency in 1998 to "opt" Missouri into the federal reformulated gasoline program for the St. Louis low-level ozone nonattainment area beginning in the warm weather season for 1999; and

WHEREAS, MTBE has been used in reformulated motor fuel required throughout the St. Louis non-attainment area during the warm weather season beginning in 1999; and

WHEREAS, MTBE has been shown to be a possible human carcinogen which renders drinking water foul and unusable by humans and obscures its benefit of improving air quality; and

WHEREAS, the continued use of reformulated gasoline with MTBE could cause significant and long-lasting contamination of St. Louis area soils and drinking water supplies; and

WHEREAS, this threat to public health and the environment constitutes an emergency situation requiring immediate emergency action by the Governor as the supreme executive official of the state; and

WHEREAS, confronted with a similar situation, the Governor of California issued an executive order calling for "removal of MTBE from gasoline at the earliest possible date"; and

WHEREAS, Congress has recently introduced legislation to ban the use of MTBE but would allow the harmful polluting to continue for three years; and

WHEREAS, should any private citizen pollute the groundwater of this state, the Department of Natural Resources of this administration would demand and require immediate cessation of said polluting activity; and

WHEREAS, the United States Environmental Protection Agency revised its regulations to end the use of MTBE as a part of reformulated gasoline but has also allowed the harmful pollution to continue; and

WHEREAS, all the Governor of the state of Missouri has done regarding this crisis is to write a letter to Carol Browner, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, to come up with a "national solution" and expressing individual states "will devise different solutions that may not be protective":

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, by the Missouri Senate, Ninetieth General Assembly, Second Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby join in remonstrating against Governor Mel Carnahan for opting the state into participation in this potentially harmful and hazardous reformulated gasoline program; and expressing the view that the Federal Government is better able to protect the citizens of Missouri than their state government; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Governor should issue an executive order calling for the removal of MTBE from gasoline at the earliest possible date; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for the Governor and each member of Missouri's Congressional delegation and the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Director of the Department of Natural Resources.

4. Promptly after their appointment, the initial board members shall hold an organizational meeting at which they shall elect a chairman and such other officers from among their number as they may deem necessary and the board may make and adopt such bylaws, rules and regulations for their guidance and for the execution of the purposes of the district as may be expedient and not inconsistent with sections 66.750 to 66.789.

The district may obtain such insurance as it deems appropriate, considering its legal limits of liability, to protect itself, its officers and its agents from any potential liability and may also obtain such other types of insurance as it deems necessary to protect against loss of its real or personal property of any kind.
