HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 5

An Act by concurrent resolution and pursuant to Article IV, Section 8, to disapprove the final order of rulemaking for the proposed amendment to 1 CSR 10-4.010 relating to State of Missouri Vendor Payroll Deductions, with an emergency clause.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI, AS FOLLOWS:

Whereas, the Office of Administration filed proposed amendment for 1 CSR 10-4.010 on August 15, 2003, and filed the order of rulemaking with the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules on November 14, 2003; and

Whereas, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules held a hearing on December 8, 2003, and has found the rule lacking in compliance with the provisions of Chapter 536, RSMo, in that the rule either lacked statutory authority in violation of section 536.014, RSMo, or had an inaccurate fiscal note regarding costs to private persons in violation of section 536.205, RSMo;

Now, therefore, be it resolved the General Assembly finds that the office of administration has violated the provisions of Chapter 536, RSMo, when it failed to comply with the provisions of section 536.014, RSMo, or 536.205, RSMo; and

Be it further resolved that the Ninety-second General Assembly, upon concurrence of a majority of the members of the Senate and a majority of the members of the House of Representatives, hereby permanently disapproves and suspends the final order of rulemaking for the proposed amendment to 1 CSR 10-4.010, State of Missouri Vendor Payroll Deductions; and

Be it further resolved that a copy of the foregoing be submitted to the Secretary of State so that the Secretary of State may publish in the Missouri Register, as soon as practicable, notice of the disapproval of the final order of rulemaking for the proposed amendment to 1 CSR 10-4.010, upon this resolution having been signed by the Governor or having been approved by two-thirds of each house of the Ninety-second General Assembly, Second Regular Session, after veto by the Governor as provided in Article III, Sections 31 and 32, and Article IV, Section 8 of the Missouri Constitution; and

Be it further resolved that a properly inscribed copy be presented to the Governor in accordance with Article IV, Section 8 of the Missouri Constitution.
