RE: Conference Committee Report #2 on HCS/SB795

Dear Madam Secretary:

This is to notify you and others that I hereby am filing a constitutional objection to said bill for the following reasons:

1. The underlying bill dealt only with "emergency communication systems". It continued to have that same theme and content through its process until it got to the conference committee where the "Boiler and Pressure Vessel Board" was added to the bill. There is a Hammerschmidt problem in that the conference committee substitute #2 went beyond the intent and content of the underlying bill dealing only with "emergency communication systems". I would suggest that Section 650.277 is not germane and is in excess to the bill.

2. The second objection is based on the fact that the conference committee exceeded the differences without permission in adopting the conference committee report #2. It was not until the conference committee #2 was before the Senate that the sponsor, Senator John D. Schneider, made the motion to exceed the difference and adopt the conference committee report.

Thank you in advance for registering this constitutional objection on the above points.

Sincerely,

/s/ Marvin Singleton

The Honorable Peter Kinder

Senate President Pro Tempore

State Capitol, Room 326

Jefferson City, MO 65101

RE: Constitutional Objection to Conference Committee Substitute for House Substitute for House Committee Substitute for Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 1107, as amended.

I hereby raise a formal constitutional objection pursuant to Article III, Section 30 of the Constitution of Missouri to the signing of Conference Committee Substitute for House Substitute for House Committee Substitute for Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 1107, as amended, based on the following:

Article III, Section 20(a) of the Constitution of Missouri provides that "All bills in either house remaining on the calendar after 6:00 p.m. on the first Friday following the second Monday in May are tabled". Conference Committee Substitute for House Substitute for House Committee Substitute for Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 1107, as amended, violates Article III, Section 20(a) because the bill was still on the House calendar at 6:00 p.m., Friday, May 17, 2002. As shown by the attached computer-generated printouts of floor action by the House of Representatives (which do not reveal the bill number but which are supported by roll call votes on pages 2377 to 2381 of the Journal of the House for Friday, May 17, 2002), the motion to suspend Rule 60(c) was not made and adopted until 6:08 p.m., the Conference Committee Report was not taken up and adopted until 6:09 p.m., and the Conference Committee Substitute, as amended, was not Truly Agreed and Finally Passed until 6:09 p.m., all past the time deadline established by the Constitution of Missouri.

The Supreme Court of Missouri has recognized the existence of the constitutionally imposed deadline, stating that "legislation cannot be changed during the enrolling period, if the period for considering bills specified in section 20 has expired", and that even "[t]he absence of any objection at the signing stage does not convert into legislation a law which the legislature had no power to enact". State ex rel. Aschroft v. Blunt, 696 S.W.2d 329, 331 (Mo.banc 1985).

Sincerely,

/s/ Larry Rohrbach

OBJECTIONS

Senator Goode offered the following constitutional objection:

May 24, 2002

The Honorable Peter Kinder

Senate President Pro Tempore

State Capitol, Room 326

Jefferson City, MO 65101

RE: Constitutional Objection to Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041

The purpose of this letter is to raise a formal constitutional objection pursuant to Senate Rule 67 that Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041 is in violation of Article III, Section 36, Article IV, Section 28, and Article III, Section 21, Constitution of Missouri based on the following:

1) Article III, Section 36 of the Constitution of Missouri provides that "All revenue collected and money received by the state shall go into the treasury and the general assembly shall have no power to divert the same or to permit the withdrawal of money from the treasury, except in pursuance of appropriations made by law." Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041, and specifically section 620.467, RSMo, constitutes an unlawful delegation of legislative authority to permit the withdrawal or transfer of an unspecified amount of general revenue to the Division of Tourism Supplemental Revenue Fund outside the appropriations process;

2) Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041, and specifically section 620.467, RSMo, further constitutes an unlawful delegation of legislative authority by allowing the state treasurer, the Office of Administration, or any other administrative agency to accomplish the withdrawal or transfer of an unspecified amount of general revenue to the Division of Tourism Supplemental Revenue Fund outside the appropriations process;

3) Article IV, Section 28 of the Constitution of Missouri provides that "No money shall be withdrawn from the state treasury except by warrant in accordance with an appropriation made by law...." In addition to the objections noted above, Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041, and specifically section 620.467, RSMo, contravenes this constitutional provision by permitting the withdrawal or transfer of an unspecified amount of general revenue to the Division of Tourism Supplemental Revenue Fund outside the appropriations process;

4) Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 1041, and specifically section 620.467, RSMo, inserts in lieu of the word "transfer" throughout the section the word "deposit". Missouri case law indicates that a legal distinction exists between those terms: a "transfer" of funds requires some sort of legal authorization; but "deposit" connotes a function of a collection process, a ministerial exercise involving no legal authorization for its existence. See Stephens v. Bragg City, 27 S.W.2d 1063 (Mo. App. 1930). If changing "transfer" to "deposit" was successful in its intent to direct the Treasurer to directly deposit the funds, it would cause an unlawful delegation of authority as the state treasurer would be required to determine the amount to be transferred which can only legally be determined by the General Assembly;

5) Article III, Section 21 provides that "no bill shall be so amended in its passage through either house as to change its original purpose." The title of House Bill 1041 as introduced in the House, as placed on the consent calendar, and as perfected and third read by the House was relating to "tourism tax trust funds in certain cities". Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute for House Bill 1041 broadens the title to relating to "tourism". Based on the original title and purpose of House Bill 1041, section 620.467, RSMo, added in the Senate goes beyond the original purpose of the bill. Section 620.467 attempts to require the Treasurer to deposit general revenue into the Division of Tourism Supplemental Revenue Fund without an appropriation by the General Assembly. While one could argue that the subject matter of section 620.467 fits the title of "tourism" in the Senate Substitute for Senate Committee Substitute, it does not fit within the original title and goes well beyond the purpose of the original bill. See Hammerschmidt v. Boone County, 877 S.W.2d 98 (Mo. banc 1994).

Sincerely,

/s/ Wayne Goode
