CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS

Senators Steelman, Cauthorn, Klindt, Westfall, Rohrbach and Russell offered the following concurrent resolution:

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 59

WHEREAS, in 1998, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball formed the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics to study whether revenue disparities among professional baseball clubs are seriously damaging competitive balance in the league and to determine whether a lack of competitive balance in the league, if any, has had an adverse impact on the ability of the existing professional baseball clubs to grow the game of professional baseball, secure new facilities and produce operating stability; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner also directed the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics to explain its analysis and produce recommendations in the form of structural reforms to address the problems, if the Commission found a competitive imbalance and concluded that the competitive imbalance problem is related to structural characteristics of baseball's economic system and poses a threat to the game; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics performed an extensive 18-month long investigation into these matters and produced an 87-page report of its findings, conclusions and recommendations, to wit: The Report of the Independent Members of the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics (July 2000); and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that "large and growing revenue disparities exist and are causing problems of chronic competitive imbalance" in the professional game of baseball; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that these problems became "substantially worse" during the five-season timeframe of their study and investigation (1995-1999) and "seem likely to remain severe unless Major League Baseball ("MLB") undertakes remedial actions proportional to the problem"; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that "the problem of competitive balance is a product of MLB's economic structure, and that this structure is adversely affecting the ability of most clubs to increase revenues and achieve operating stability"; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that "the limited revenue sharing and payroll tax that were approved as part of MLB's 1996 Collective Bargaining Agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association ("MLBPA") have produced neither the intended moderating of payroll disparities nor improved competitive balance"; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that "in a majority of MLB markets, the cost to clubs of trying to be competitive is causing escalation of ticket and concession prices, jeopardizing MLB's traditional position as the affordable family spectator sport"; and

WHEREAS, based upon its conclusions, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics made several recommendations to address the economic ills of professional baseball, to wit:

(1) Revenue Sharing--MLB should share at least 40 percent, and perhaps as much as 50 percent, of all member clubs' local revenue, less local ballpark expenses as uniformly defined; and

(2) Competitive Balance Tax--MLB should levy a 50 percent competitive balance tax on club payrolls that are above a fixed threshold of $84 million and all clubs should be encouraged to have a minimum payroll of $40 million; and

(3) Central Fund Distributions--MLB should use unequal distribution of new Central Fund revenues to improve competitive balance, creating a "Commissioner's Pool" that is allocated to assist low-revenue clubs in improving their competitiveness and in meeting the minimum payroll obligation of $40 million; and

(4) Competitive Balance Draft--MLB should conduct an annual "Competitive Balance Draft" of players in which the weakest eight clubs would have a unique opportunity to select non-40-man roster players from the organizations of the eight clubs that qualified for the playoffs; and

(5) Rule 4 Draft--MLB should implement reforms in the Rule 4 draft; and

(6) Franchise Relocations--MLB should utilize strategic franchise relocations to address the competitive issues facing the game; and

WHEREAS, the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics concluded that many of their recommendations "cannot be implemented unilaterally by MLB and its member clubs", but also require the concurrence and collaboration of the MLBPA; and

WHEREAS, in early December of 2001, the Commissioner testified before Congress that the economic climate of Major League Baseball is continuing to deteriorate and that the thirty existing professional clubs had a combined loss in excess of $519 million during 2001; and

WHEREAS, as a result of the extremely poor economic performance of Major League Baseball throughout the past several years due to the structural flaws in baseball's economic system, the Commissioner recently called for the elimination of two professional baseball clubs from the thirty-member league, an action that has not been considered by Major League Baseball in over 100 years; and

WHEREAS, the industry of professional baseball is in severe turmoil with a possible players' strike and owners' lock-out being seriously considered and with several lawsuits having recently been filed against Major League Baseball concerning the issue of contraction and with several bills having recently been filed in Congress concerning the issue of baseball's exemption from federal antitrust laws:

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninety-First General Assembly, Second Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby urge Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association to address the serious problems existing within the current economic structure of professional baseball and take substantial steps toward implementation of all or a substantial portion of the recommendations set forth in The Report of the Independent Members of the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics (July 2000); and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri General Assembly, hereby urge the ownership groups of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals, along with the players' representatives of all players on those two Missouri-based teams, to support and work in furtherance of the implementation of all or a substantial portion of the recommendations set forth in The Report of the Independent Members of the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics (July 2000); and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri General Assembly hereby declare that under no circumstances should Major League Baseball owners be permitted to use team elimination/contraction (Major League Baseball fielding fewer teams than the number that participated in the 2001 season) as a means to achieve or make progress towards the goals outlined in the Blue Ribbon Report; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri General Assembly, hereby declare their support for a moratorium on providing state funding for the construction of a new professional baseball stadium in St. Louis and for a moratorium on providing increased state funding for the existing professional baseball stadium in Kansas City until such time as Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Players Association, takes substantial steps toward implementation of all or a substantial portion of the recommendations set forth in The Report of the Independent Members of the Commissioner's Blue Ribbon Panel on Baseball Economics (July 2000); and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Missouri Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association, the St. Louis Cardinals, L.P., and the Kansas City Royals Baseball Corporation.

Senator Stoll offered SA 4:

SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 4

Amend Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 1059, Page 16, Section 161.092, Line 24, by inserting after all of said line the following:

"163.036. 1. In computing the amount of state aid a school district is entitled to receive under section 163.031, a school district may use an estimate of the number of eligible pupils for the ensuing year, the number of eligible pupils for the immediately preceding year or the number of eligible pupils for the second preceding school year, whichever is greater. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 3 of this section, any error made in the apportionment of state aid because of a difference between the actual number of eligible pupils and the estimated number of eligible pupils shall be corrected as provided in section 163.091, except that if the amount paid to a district estimating eligible pupils exceeds the amount to which the district was actually entitled by more than five percent, interest at the rate of six percent shall be charged on the excess and shall be added to the amount to be deducted from the district's apportionment the next succeeding year.

2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 1 of this section or any other provision of law, the state board of education shall make an adjustment for the immediately preceding year for any increase in the actual number of eligible pupils above the number on which the state aid in section 163.031 was calculated. Said adjustment shall be made in the manner providing for correction of errors under subsection 1 of this section.

3. (1) For any district which has, for at least five years immediately preceding the year in which the error is discovered, adopted a calendar for the school term in which elementary schools are in session for twelve months of each calendar year, any error made in the apportionment of state aid to such district because of a difference between the actual number of eligible pupils and the estimated number of eligible pupils shall be corrected as provided in section 163.091 and subsection 1 of this section, except that if the amount paid exceeds the amount to which the district was actually entitled by more than five percent and the district provides written application to the state board requesting that the deductions be made pursuant to subdivision (2) of this subsection, then the amounts shall be deducted pursuant to subdivision (2) of this subsection.

(2) For deductions made pursuant to this subdivision, interest at the rate of six percent shall be charged on the excess and shall be included in the amount deducted and the total amount of such excess plus accrued interest shall be deducted from the district's apportionment in equal monthly amounts beginning with the succeeding school year and extending for a period of months specified by the district in its written request and no longer than sixty months.

4. For the purposes of distribution of state school aid pursuant to section 163.031, a school district may elect to use the district's equalized assessed valuation for the preceding year, or an estimate of the current year's assessed valuation if the current year's equalized assessed valuation is estimated to be more than ten percent less than the district's equalized assessed valuation for the preceding year. A district shall give prior notice to the department of its intention to use the current year's assessed valuation pursuant to this subsection. Any error made in the apportionment of state aid because of a difference between the actual equalized assessed valuation for the current year and the estimated equalized assessed valuation for the current year shall be corrected as provided in section 163.091, except that if the amount paid to a district estimating current equalized assessed valuation exceeds the amount to which the district was actually entitled, interest at the rate of six percent shall be charged on the excess and shall be added to the amount to be deducted from the district's apportionment the next succeeding year.

5. For the purposes of distribution of state school aid pursuant to section 163.031, a school district with ten percent or more of its assessed valuation owned by one person or corporation as commercial and/or personal property and this person or corporation is delinquent in it's property tax payment, may elect, after receiving notice from the county clerk on or before March fifteenth, except in the year enacted, that more than ten percent of its current taxes due the preceding December thirty-first by a single property owner are delinquent, to use on line 2 of the state aid formula the district's equalized assessed valuation for the preceding year or the actual assessed valuation of the year for which the taxes are delinquent less the assessed valuation of property for which the current year's property tax is delinquent. To qualify for use of the actual assessed valuation of the year for which the taxes are delinquent less the assessed valuation of property for which the current year's property tax is delinquent, a district must notify the department of elementary and secondary education on or before April first, except in the year enacted, of the current year amount of delinquent taxes, the assessed valuation of such property for which delinquent taxes are owed and the total assessed valuation of the district for the year in which the taxes were due but not paid. Any district giving such notice to the department of elementary and secondary education shall present verification of the accuracy of such notice obtained from the clerk of the county levying delinquent taxes. When any of the delinquent taxes identified by such notice are paid during a four year period following the due date the county clerk shall give notice to the district and the department of elementary and secondary education and state aid paid to the district shall be reduced by an amount equal to the delinquent taxes received plus interest. The reduction in state aid shall occur over a period not to exceed five years and the interest rate on excess state aid not refunded shall be six percent annually.

6. If a district receives state aid based on equalized assessed valuation as determined by subsection 5 of this section and if prior to such notice the district was paid state aid pursuant to subdivision (2) of subsection 5 of section 163.031, the amount of state aid paid during the year of such notice and the first year following shall equal the sum of state aid paid pursuant to line 1 minus line 10 as defined in subsections 1, 2, 3 and 6 of section 163.031 plus the difference between the state aid amount being paid before such notice minus the amount of state aid the district would have received pursuant to line 1 minus line 10 as defined in subsections 1, 2, 3 and 6 of section 163.031 before such notice. To be eligible to receive state aid based on this provision the district must levy during the first year following such notice at least the maximum levy permitted school districts by article X, section 11(b) of the Missouri Constitution and have a voluntary rollback of its tax rate which is no greater than one cent per one hundred dollars assessed valuation.

Section B. Because the funding of free public schools is a prominent responsibility of this state, the repeal and reenactment of section 163.036 of this act is deemed necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health, welfare, peace and safety, and is hereby declared to be an emergency act within the meaning of the constitution, and the repeal and reenactment of section 163.036 of this act shall be in full force and effect upon its passage and approval."; and

Further amend the title and enacting clause accordingly.

Senator Stoll moved that the above amendment be adopted, which motion failed.

Senator Steelman offered SA 5:

SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 5

Amend Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 1059, Page 18, Section 166.260, Line 17, by inserting after all of said line the following:

"170.014. 1. This section shall be known as the "Reading Instruction Act" and is enacted to ensure that all public schools establish reading programs based in scientific research and offer explicit systematic phonics instruction in grades kindergarten through three as a significant component of a program of balanced reading instruction and that all new teachers who teach reading in grades kindergarten through three receive adequate training in the teaching of explicit systematic phonics.

2. As used in this section, "explicit systematic phonics", means the methodology of pronouncing and reading words by learning the phonetic sound association of individual letters, letter groups and syllables and the principles governing these associations. Reading instruction using implied recognition of words or partial words through the use of pictures or other references other than explicit pronunciation of phonetic letter combinations shall not be admitted as a substitute in compliance with this provisions.

3. Explicit systematic phonics instruction shall be offered in every public school in the state in grades kindergarten through three as a significant component of a program of balanced reading instruction. Nothing in this section shall be construed to allow for implicit phonics methodology as a substitute for the teaching of explicit systematic phonics as defined by this section.

4. On and after July 1, 2005, no teacher shall be certified to teach reading in the public schools of this state in grades kindergarten through three, either as a reading specialist or as a classroom teacher, unless the teacher has successfully completed instruction in explicit systematic phonics at the university or college level."; and

Further amend the title and enacting clause accordingly.

Senator Steelman moved that the above amendment be adopted and requested a roll call vote be taken. She was joined in her request by Senators Bentley, Caskey, Cauthorn and Gibbons.
