SB 785 - Under this act, the fee imposed on recorded instruments to assist the homeless is increased from $3 to $5. This act also allows any county governing body to establish a program to provide assistance to homeless persons. Under current law, only St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and Jackson County are authorized to establish a fund for the purpose of assisting homeless families. If the governing body of the county chooses to establish a program to assist homeless persons, then $3 of the $5-fee charged will be used by that county to finance the homeless program. The remaining $2 will be credited to the Missouri Housing Trust Fund. If the governing body of the county does not establish a program to assist the homeless, then the entire $5 will be credited to the Missouri Housing Trust Fund.
This act is identical to SB 118 (2001).
