Current Bill Summary

CCS#2/HCS/SB 795 - This act allows the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Board to set fees for inspection, permits, licenses and certificates. The Board may alter its fee schedule every two years. The Boiler and Pressure Vessels Safety Fund is created, which will contain the fees collected by the Board. Moneys in the fund shall be used to pay for the expenses of the board. If a municipality or political subdivision is responsible for enforcement the fees for inspection shall be paid directly to that entity.

The act also allows St. Louis County to establish an Emergency Communications System Commission within the county. Membership of the Commission is specified. St. Louis County may, on a vote of the people, levy and collect a tax on real property, not to exceed $.06 per $100 assessed valuation for the establishment, operation and maintenance of the emergency communications system. Moneys from the tax are to be deposited in the Emergency Communications System Fund, which is created.

Authorities and responsibilities of the Board of Commissioners are specified. Obligations by the county may be paid out of the fund or by the issuance of bonds.

This act is similar to HS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 1107 (TAT) and SCS/HB 1432 (2002).
