Further amend said bill, Pages 128 & 129, Section 250.234, by striking said section from the bill and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

"247.040. 1. Proceedings for the formation of a public water supply district shall be substantially as follows: a petition in duplicate describing the proposed boundaries of the district sought to be formed, accompanied by a plat of the proposed district, shall be filed with the clerk of the circuit court of the county wherein the proposed district is situate, or with the clerk of the circuit court of the county having the largest acreage proposed to be included in the proposed district, in the event that the proposed district embraces lands in more than one county. Such petition, in addition to such boundary description, shall set forth an estimate of the number of customers of the proposed district, the necessity for the formation of the district, the probable cost of the improvement, an approximation of the assessed valuation of taxable property within the district and such other information as may be useful to the court in determining whether or not the petition should be granted and a decree of incorporation entered. Such petition shall be accompanied by a cash deposit of fifty dollars as an advancement of the costs of the proceeding, and the petition shall be signed by not less than fifty voters or owners of real property within the proposed district and shall pray for the incorporation of the territory therein described into a public water supply district. The petition shall be verified by at least one of the signers thereof.

2. Upon the filing of the petition, the same shall be presented to the circuit court, and such court shall fix a date for a hearing on such petition, as herein provided for. Thereupon the clerk of the court shall give notice of the filing of the petition in some newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the proceedings are pending, and if the district extends into any other county or counties, such notice shall also be published in some newspaper of general circulation in such other county or counties. The notice shall contain a description of the proposed boundary lines of the district and the general purposes of the petition, and shall set forth the date fixed for the hearing on the petition, which shall not be less than seven nor more than twenty-one days after the date of the last publication of the notice and shall be on some regular judicial day of the court wherein the petition is pending. Such notice shall be signed by the clerk of the circuit court and shall be published in three successive issues of a weekly newspaper or in a daily newspaper once a week for three consecutive weeks.

3. The court, for good cause shown, may continue the case or the hearing thereon from time

to time until final disposition thereof.

4. Exceptions to the formation of a district, or to the boundaries outlined in the petition for the incorporation thereof, may be made by any voter or owner of real property in the proposed district; provided, such exceptions are filed not less than five days prior to the date set for the hearing on the petition. Such exceptions shall specify the grounds upon which the exceptions are being made. If any such exceptions be filed, the court shall take them into consideration in passing upon the petition and shall also consider the evidence in support of the petition and in support of the exceptions made. Should the court find that the petition should be granted but that changes should be made in the boundary lines, it shall make such changes in the boundary lines as set forth in the petition as to the court may seem meet and proper, and thereupon enter its decree of incorporation, with such boundaries as changed.

5. Should the court find that it would not be to the public interest to form such a district, the petition shall be dismissed at the costs of the petitioners. If, however, the court should find in favor of the formation of such district, the court shall enter its decree of incorporation, setting forth the boundaries of the proposed district as determined by the court pursuant to the aforesaid hearing. The decree of incorporation shall also divide the district into five subdistricts and shall fix their boundary lines, all of which subdistricts shall have approximately the same area and shall be numbered. The decree shall further contain an appointment of one voter from each of such subdistricts, to constitute the first board of directors of the district. No two members of such board so appointed or hereafter elected or appointed shall reside in the same subdistrict, except as provided in section 247.060. If no qualified person who lives in the subdistrict is willing to serve on the board, the court may appoint, or the voters may elect, an otherwise qualified person who lives in the district but not in the subdistrict. The court shall designate two of such directors so appointed to serve for a term of two years and one to serve for a term of one year. And the directors thus appointed by the court shall serve for the terms thus designated and until their successors shall have been appointed or elected as herein provided. The decree shall further designate the name and number of the district by which it shall hereafter be officially known.

6. The decree of incorporation shall not become final and conclusive until it shall have been submitted to the voters residing within the boundaries described in such decree and until it shall have been assented to by a majority of the voters as provided in subsection 9 of this section or by two-thirds of the voters of the district voting on the proposition. The decree shall provide for the submission of the question and shall fix the date thereof. The returns shall be certified by the judges and clerks of election to the circuit court having jurisdiction in the case and the court shall thereupon enter its order canvassing the returns and declaring the result of such election.

7. If, upon canvass and declaration, it is found and determined that the question shall have been assented to by a majority of two-thirds of the voters of the district voting on such proposition, then the court shall, in such order declaring the result of the election, enter a further order declaring the decree of incorporation to be final and conclusive. In the event, however, that the court should find that the question had not been assented to by the majority above required, the court shall enter a further order declaring such decree of incorporation to be void and of no effect. No appeal shall lie from any such decree of incorporation nor from any of the aforesaid orders. In the event that the court declares the decree of incorporation to be final, as herein provided for, the clerk of the circuit court shall file certified copies of such decree of incorporation and of such final order with the secretary of state of the state of Missouri, and with the recorder of deeds of the county or counties in which the district is situate and with the clerk of the county commission of the county or counties in which the district is situate.

8. The costs incurred in the formation of the district shall be taxed to the district, if the district be incorporated otherwise against the petitioners.

9. If petitioners seeking formation of a public water supply district specify in their petition that the district to be organized shall be organized without authority to issue general obligation bonds, then the decrees relating to the formation of the district shall recite that the district shall not have authority to issue general obligation bonds and the vote required for such a decree of incorporation to become final and conclusive shall be a simple majority of the voters of the district voting on such proposition.

10. All initial easement recording fees necessary to establish a water district created after the effective date of this section shall be payable at such time when the district is awarded grants or loans necessary for the construction of such district.

250.055. All initial easement recording fees necessary to establish a sewer district created after the effective date of this section shall be payable at such time when the district is awarded grants or loans necessary for the construction of such district."; and

Further amend the title and enacting clause accordingly.

The report shall include, but not be limited to: an analysis of the total revenue; the revenue apportioned to the county and to the carrier for providing services; the costs to the county for providing services; a review of the carrier's billings and compliance with areas of reimbursement recovery as it is defined in subsection 2 of this section; and make recommendations, including but not limited to, increasing or decreasing the levy to reflect costs.

190.305. 1. In addition to its other powers for the protection of the public health, a governing body may provide for the operation of an emergency telephone service and may pay for it by levying an emergency telephone tax for such service in those portions of the governing body's jurisdiction for which emergency telephone service has been contracted. The governing body may do such other acts as are expedient for the protection and preservation of the public health and are necessary for the operation of the emergency telephone system. The governing body is hereby authorized to levy the tax in an amount not to exceed fifteen percent of the tariff local service rate, as defined in section 190.300, or seventy-five cents per access line per month, whichever is greater, except as provided in sections 190.325 to 190.329, in those portions of the governing body's jurisdiction for which emergency telephone service has been contracted. In any county of the third classification with a population of at least thirty-two thousand but not greater than forty thousand that borders a county of the first classification, a governing body of a third or fourth class city may, with the consent of the county commission, contract for service with a public agency to provide services within the public agency's jurisdiction when such city is located wholly within the jurisdiction of the public agency. Consent shall be demonstrated by the county commission authorizing an election within the public agency's jurisdiction pursuant to section 190.320. Any contract between governing bodies and public agencies in existence on August 28, 1996, that meets such criteria prior to August 28, 1996, shall be recognized if the county commission authorized the election for emergency telephone service and a vote was held as provided in section 190.320. The governing body shall provide for a board pursuant to sections 190.327 and 190.328.

2. The tax shall be utilized to pay for the operation of emergency telephone service and the operational costs associated with the answering and dispatching of emergency calls as deemed appropriate by the governing body and for no other purpose, and may be levied at any time subsequent to execution of a contract with the provider of such service at the discretion of the governing body, but collection of such tax shall not begin prior to twenty-seven months before operation of the emergency telephone service and dispatch center.

3. Such tax shall be levied only upon the tariff rate. No tax shall be imposed upon more than one hundred exchange access facilities or their equivalent per person per location.

4. Every billed service user is liable for the tax until it has been paid to the service supplier.

5. The duty to collect the tax from a service user shall commence at such time as specified by the governing body in accordance with the provisions of sections 190.300 to 190.320. The tax required to be collected by the service supplier shall be added to and may be stated separately in the billings to the service user.

6. Nothing in this section imposes any obligation upon a service supplier to take any legal action to enforce the collection of the tax imposed by this section. The service supplier shall provide the governing body with a list of amounts uncollected along with the names and addresses of the service users refusing to pay the tax imposed by this section, if any.

7. The tax imposed by this section shall be collected insofar as practicable at the same time as, and along with, the charges for the tariff rate in accordance with the regular billing practice of the service supplier. The tariff rates determined by or stated on the billing of the service supplier are presumed to be correct if such charges were made in accordance with the service supplier's business practices. The presumption may be rebutted by evidence which establishes that an incorrect tariff rate was charged.

8. The state auditor shall have the authority to perform audits of receipts and expenditures of taxes collected pursuant to this section to determine whether such taxes are being properly administered for the operational costs of administering emergency telephone services."; and

The governing body shall make its determination of such tax rate each year no later than September first and shall fix the new rate which shall be collected as provided in sections 190.300 to 190.320.

This section and chapter 536, RSMo, are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536, RSMo, to review, to delay the effective date or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2004, shall be invalid and void.

In conducting such an inspection or risk assessment, a representative of the department, or representative of a unit of local government or health department licensed by the department for this purpose, may remove samples necessary for laboratory analysis in the determination of the presence of a lead-bearing substance or lead hazard in the designated dwelling or child-occupied facility.

3. The director shall assess fees for licenses and accreditation and levy fines in accordance with rules promulgated pursuant to sections 701.300 to [701.330] 701.338. All such fees and fines shall be deposited into the state treasury to the credit of the public health services fund established in section 192.900, RSMo.

4. In commercial lead production areas where the department of health and senior services determines that an individual, who resides in a single family dwelling and the owners use it as their primary residence, has an elevated blood lead level that is due directly to lead paint, the owner of the dwelling shall make a good faith effort to abate the lead paint as directed by the department. Upon completion of such good faith efforts to abate the lead paint, the owner of the dwelling shall not be subject to any fines issued pursuant to this section.

701.305. The department of health and senior services shall provide on its Internet website educational information that explain



the rights and responsibilities of the property owner and tenants of a dwelling and the lead inspectors, risk assessors, and the lead abatement contractors.

701.308. 1. Upon receipt of written notification of the presence of a lead hazard, the owner shall comply with the requirement for abating or establishing interim controls for the lead hazard in a manner consistent with the recommendations described by the department and within the applicable time period. If the dwelling or child-occupied facility is a rental or leased property, the owner may remove it from the rental market.

2. Except as provided in subsection 1 of this section, no tenant shall be evicted because an individual with an elevated blood lead level or with suspected lead poisoning resides in the dwelling, or because of any action required of the dwelling owner as a result of enforcement of sections 701.300 to 701.338. The provisions of this subsection shall not operate to prevent the owner of any such dwelling from evicting a tenant for any other reason as provided by law.

3. No child shall be denied attendance at a child-occupied facility because of an elevated blood lead level or suspected lead poisoning or because of any action required of the facility owner as a result of enforcement of sections 701.300 to 701.338. The provisions of this subsection shall not prevent the owner or agent of any such child-occupied facility from denying attendance for any other reason allowed by law.

4. A representative of the department, or a representative of a unit of local government or health department licensed by the department for this purpose, is authorized to re-enter a dwelling or child-occupied facility to determine if the required actions have been taken that will result in the reduction of lead hazards. If consent to enter is not granted, the representative of the department, local government, or local health department may petition the court for an order to enter the premises. The court shall grant the order upon a showing that the representative of the department, local government, or local health department has attempted to notify the dwelling's owner or adult occupant in writing of the time and purpose of the re-entry at least forty-eight hours in advance.

5. [Whenever] Upon re-entry, if the department[,] or a representative of a unit of local government[,] or local health department licensed by the department for this purpose, finds[, after providing written notification to the owner,] that the owner has not taken the required actions which [will result] have resulted in the reduction of [a] lead [hazard in a dwelling or child-occupied facility have not been taken] hazards, the owner shall be deemed to be in violation of sections 701.300 to 701.338. Such violation shall not by itself create a cause of action. The department or the local government or local health department shall:

(1) Notify in writing the owner found to be causing, allowing or permitting the violation to take place; and

(2) Order that the owner of the dwelling or child-occupied facility shall cease and abate causing, allowing or permitting the violation and shall take such action as is necessary to comply with this section and the rules promulgated pursuant to this section.

[5.] 6. If [no action is taken pursuant to subsection 4 of this section which would result in abatement or interim control of the lead hazard within the stated time period], upon re-entry, the lead hazard has not been reduced, the following steps may be taken:

(1) The local health officer and local building officials may, as practical, use such community or other resources as are available to effect the relocation of the individuals who occupied the affected dwelling or child-occupied facility until the owner complies with the notice; or

(2) The department[,] or representative of a unit of local government or health department licensed by the department for this purpose, [shall] may report any violation of sections 701.300 to 701.338 to the prosecuting attorney of the county in which the dwelling or child-occupied facility is located and notify the owner that such a report has been made. The prosecuting attorney shall seek injunctive relief to ensure that the lead hazard is abated or that interim controls are established.

7. In addition to the injunctive relief provided in subdivision 2 of subsection 6 of this section, the court may impose a fine against the owner of the dwelling or child-occupied facility found to be in violation of any provision of sections 701.300 to 701.338, RSMo. The amount of such fine shall reflect the seriousness or potential seriousness of the threat to human health and the environment posed by the violation, but shall not exceed ten thousand dollars. The fine shall not be less than five thousand dollars if said owner has failed to reduce identified lead hazards upon a showing that:

(1) Said property owner has been notified that an occupant or child less than six years of age dwelling in his property has an elevated blood lead level pursuant to section 701.306;

(2) That re-entry by the department under subsection 5 of this section revealed that the required actions to reduce the lead hazards were not taken; and

(3) Another occupant or child less than six years of age dwelling in his property is identified with an elevated blood lead level.

701.309. 1. At least ten days prior to the onset of a lead abatement project, the lead abatement contractor conducting such an abatement project shall:

(1) Submit to the department a written notification as prescribed by the department; and

(2) Pay a notification fee of twenty-five dollars.

2. In addition to the specified penalties in section 701.320, failure to notify the department prior to the onset of a lead abatement project shall result in a fine levied by the department of one thousand dollars imposed against the lead abatement contractor for the first identified offense, two thousand dollars for the second identified offense, and thereafter, fines shall be doubled for each identified offense.

3. The lead abatement contractor shall inform the owners and tenants of a dwelling that information regarding potential lead hazards can be accessed on the department's Internet website.

4. If the lead abatement contractor is unable to comply with the requirements of subsection 1 of this section because of an emergency situation as defined by rule, the contractor shall:

(1) Notify the department by other means of communication within twenty-four hours of the onset of the project; and

(2) Submit the written notification and notification fee prescribed in subsection 1 of this section to the department no more than five days after the onset of the project.

5. Upon completion of the abatement, the lead abatement contractor shall submit to the department written notification and the final clearance inspection report.

701.311. 1. Any authorized representative of the department who presents appropriate credentials may, at all reasonable times, enter public or private property to conduct compliance inspections of lead abatement contractors as may be necessary to implement the provisions of sections 701.300 to 701.338 and any rules promulgated pursuant to sections 701.300 to 701.338.

2. It is unlawful for any person to refuse entry or access requested for inspecting or determining compliance with sections 701.300 to 701.338. A suitably restricted search warrant, upon a showing of probable cause in writing and upon oath, shall be issued by any circuit or associate circuit judge having jurisdiction for the purpose of enabling such inspections.

3. Whenever the director determines through a compliance inspection that there are reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a violation of any provision of sections 701.300 to 701.338 or the rules promulgated pursuant to sections 701.300 to 701.338, the director shall give notice of such alleged violation to the owner or person responsible, as provided in this section. The notice shall:

(1) Be in writing;

(2) Include a statement of the reasons for the issuance of the notice;

(3) Allow reasonable time as determined by the director for the performance of any act the notice requires;

(4) Be served upon the property owner or person responsible as the case may require, provided that such notice shall be deemed to have been properly served upon such person when a copy of such notice has been sent by registered or certified mail to the person's last known address as listed in the local property tax records concerning such property, or when such person has been served with such notice by any other method authorized by law;

(5) Contain an outline of corrective action which is required to effect compliance with sections 701.300 to 701.338 and the rules promulgated pursuant to sections 701.300 to 701.338.

4. In the event the department is required to revisit an abatement project, either because a contractor is not present for the notification visit referenced in section 701.309, RSMo, or because the contractor is found in violation of a provision of sections 701.300 to 701.338, RSMo, or any regulation promulgated thereunder, the lead abatement contractor shall pay a fee of one hundred and fifty dollars per re-visit.

5. If an owner or person files a written request for a hearing within ten days of the date of receipt of a notice, a hearing shall be held within thirty days from the date of receipt of the notice before the director or the director's designee to review the appropriateness of the corrective action. The director shall issue a written decision within thirty days of the date of the hearing. Any final decision of the director may be appealed to the administrative hearing commission as provided in chapter 621, RSMo. Any decision of the administrative hearing commission may be appealed as provided in sections 536.100 to 536.140, RSMo.

[5.] 6. The attorney general or the prosecuting attorney of the county in which any violation of sections 701.300 to 701.338 or the rules promulgated pursuant to sections 701.300 to 701.338, occurred shall, at the request of the city, county or department, institute appropriate proceedings for correction.

[6.] 7. When the department determines that an emergency exists which requires immediate action to protect the health and welfare of the public, the department is authorized to seek a temporary restraining order and injunction. Such action shall be brought at the request of the director by the local prosecuting attorney or the attorney general. For the purposes of this subsection, an "emergency" means any set of circumstances that constitutes an imminent health hazard or the threat of an imminent health hazard.

8. In addition to any other penalty provided by law, the department may assess a fine in a maximum amount not to exceed one thousand dollars for the first violation and five thousand dollars for each subsequent violation against any inspector, risk assessor, lead abatement worker, lead abatement supervisor, project designer, or contractor licensed by the department who violates a provision of sections 701.300 to 701.338, or any rule promulgated thereunder. In the cases of a continuing violation, every day such violation continues shall be deemed a separate violation.

701.312. 1. The director of the department of health and senior services shall develop a program to license lead inspectors, risk assessors, lead abatement supervisors, lead abatement workers, project designers and lead abatement contractors. The director shall promulgate rules and regulations including, but not limited to:

(1) The power to issue, restrict, suspend, revoke, deny and reissue licenses;

(2) The ability to enter into reciprocity agreements with other states that have similar licensing provisions;

(3) Fees for any such licenses;

(4) Training, education and experience requirements; and

(5) The implementation of work practice standards, reporting requirements and licensing standards.

2. [The director shall issue temporary risk assessor licenses to persons who, as of August 28, 1998, are licensed by the department as lead inspectors. The temporary risk assessor licenses issued pursuant to this subsection shall expire upon the same date as the expiration date of such person's lead inspector license. The director shall set forth standards and conditions under which temporary risk assessor licenses shall be issued.] The director shall require, as a condition of licensure, lead abatement contractors to purchase and maintain liability insurance. The director shall require a licensee or an applicant for licensure to provide evidence of their ability to indemnify any person that may suffer damage from lead-based paint activities of which the licensee or applicant may be liable. The licensee or applicant may provide proof of liability insurance in an amount to be determined by the director which shall not be less than three hundred thousand dollars.

701.313. 1. Any local community organization, government agency, or quasi-government agency issuing grants or loans for lead abatement projects must provide written notification to the department no later than ten days prior to the onset of a lead abatement project. The written notification shall include, but not be limited to, the name of the lead abatement contractor, the address of the property on which the lead abatement project shall be conducted, and the date on which the lead abatement project will be conducted.

2. If the local community organization, government agency, or quasi-government agency fails to provide written notification for each property pursuant to subsection 1 of this section, a fine of two hundred fifty dollars shall be levied by the department.

3. If the local community organization, government agency, or quasi-government agency is unable to comply with the requirements in subsection 1 of this section due to an emergency situation, as defined by the department, the local community organization, government agency, or quasi-government agency shall:

(1) Notify the department by other means of communication within twenty-four hours of the onset of the lead abatement project; and

(2) Provide written notification to the department no later than five days after the onset of the lead abatement project.

701.320. 1. Except as otherwise provided, violation of the provisions of sections 701.308, 701.309, 701.310, 701.311 and 701.316 is a class A misdemeanor.

2. Any subsequent violation of the provisions of sections 701.308, 701.309, 701.310, 701.311, and 701.316 is a class D felony.

701.336. 1. The department of health and senior services shall cooperate with the federal government in implementing subsections (d) and (e) of 15 U.S.C. 2685 to establish public education activities and an information clearinghouse regarding childhood lead poisoning. The department may develop additional educational materials on lead hazards to children, lead poisoning prevention, lead poisoning screening, lead abatement and disposal, and on health hazards during abatement.

2. The department of health and senior services and the department of social services, in collaboration with related not-for-profit organizations, American Academy of Pediatrics, health maintenance organizations, and the Missouri consolidated health care plan, shall devise an educational strategy to increase the number of children who are tested for lead poisoning under the Medicaid program. The goal of the educational strategy is to have seventy-five percent of the children who receive Medicaid tested for lead poisoning by August 28, 2008. The educational strategy shall be implemented over a three-year period and shall be in accordance with all federal laws and regulations.

3. The division of family services, in collaboration with the department of health and senior services, shall regularly inform eligible clients of the availability and desirability of lead screening and treatment services, including those available through the early and periodic screening, diagnosis, and treatment (EPSDT) component of the Medicaid program.

4. The department of social services shall seek Medicaid waivers for the funding of lead prevention cleaning treatments and lead hazard reduction measures in the properties of Medicaid recipients. The department shall coordinate with the department of health and senior services to ensure that priority homes receive the appropriate funding and that risk assessments are conducted for the purpose of identifying lead hazards in properties.

701.342. 1. The department of health and senior services shall, using factors established by the department, including but not limited to the geographic index from data from testing reports, identify geographic areas in the state that are at high risk for lead poisoning. All children six months of age through six years of age who reside or spend more than ten hours a week in an area identified as high risk by the department shall be tested annually for lead poisoning.

2. Every child six months through six years of age not residing or spending more than ten hours a week in geographic areas identified as high risk by the department shall be assessed annually using a questionnaire to determine whether such child is at high risk for lead poisoning. The department, in collaboration with the department of social services, shall develop the questionnaire, which shall follow the recommendations of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The department may modify the questionnaire to broaden the scope of the high-risk category. Local boards or commissions of health may add questions to the questionnaire.

3. Every child deemed to be at high risk for lead poisoning according to the questionnaire developed pursuant to subsection 2 of this section shall be tested using a blood sample.

4. Any child deemed to be at high risk for lead poisoning pursuant to this section who resides in housing currently undergoing renovations may be tested at least once every six months during the renovation and once after the completion of the renovation.

5. The department of social services, in collaboration with the department of health and senior services, shall ensure that all children six months through six years of age who are in foster care in geographic areas identified as high risk by the department are tested annually for lead poisoning. The costs of the testing shall be paid through the state Medicaid program. If a child who is in foster care and resides in a high risk area is not eligible for Medicaid, the costs of the testing shall be paid by the state.

6. Any laboratory providing test results for lead poisoning pursuant to sections 701.340 to 701.349 shall notify the department of the test results of any child tested for lead poisoning as required in section 701.326. Any child who tests positive for lead poisoning shall receive follow-up testing in accordance with rules established by the department. The department shall, by rule, establish the methods and intervals of follow-up testing and treatment for such children.

[6.] 7. When the department is notified of a case of lead poisoning, the department shall require the testing of all other children less than six years of age, and any other children or persons at risk, as determined by the director, who are residing or have recently resided in the household of the lead-poisoned child."; and
