SB 601 - This act allows St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County, Franklin County, Warren County and Lincoln County to impose a sales tax of up to one quarter of one cent for community services for children. Current law only allows St. Charles County to enact this sales tax.
This act increases the age from eighteen to nineteen for people to benefit from the services funded by this sales tax.
The moneys collected from this sales tax will be deposited into the county's Community Children's Service Fund and administered by the Board of Directors. (Section 210.860)
This act modifies the current law that pertains to the Board
of Directors who administer the Community Children's Service Fund
by allowing St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County,
Jefferson County, Franklin County, Warren County and Lincoln
County to have its Community Mental Health Board of Trustees
oversee the Community Children's Services Fund, not a separate
Board of Directors. Current law only allows St. Louis City and
St. Charles County to have the Community Mental Health Board of
Trustees oversee the fund.
