SB 1221 - This act may be cited as the "Missouri Sunset Act".
The act provides that all new programs authorized by the
General Assembly will sunset six years after their effective date
unless re-authorized by the General Assembly. New legislation
must indicate whether it contains a program subject to this act.
Legislation re-authorizing a program shall specify that the
program will sunset at a date not more than twelve years from the
re-authorization. Prior to the sunset of any program, the
Committee on Legislative Research will evaluate the continued
need of the program and develop a recommendation.
