The commissioner of administration shall review and approve all requests of the state treasurer of disbursements from the state treasurer’s general operations fund for compliance with the provisions of this section.

All other remaining interest received on the investment of state funds shall be allocated and deposited to funds within the state treasury as required by law.

       (2) The total costs for personal service, equipment and other expenses of the state treasurer related to the state treasurer’s constitutional and statutory responsibilities, exclusive of any personal service, equipment and other expenses attributable to positions wholly dedicated to the functions described in chapter 447, RSMo, and any banking fees and other banking-related costs, shall not exceed ten basis points, or one-tenth of one percent, of the total of the average daily fund balance of funds within the state treasury.

       4. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080, RSMo, moneys in the “State Treasurer’s General Operations Fund” shall not lapse to the general revenue fund at the end of the biennium unless and only to the extent to which the amount in the fund exceeds the annual appropriations from the fund for the current fiscal year.

       Section B. Because of the need to provide consistent funding to the State Treasurer’s Office to allow the office’s primary functions to proceed in a timely and efficient manner, section A 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 section A of this act shall be in full force and effect upon its passage and approval.”.

Feb. 16, 2005

Ms. Terry Spieler

Secretary of the Senate

State Capitol

Room 325

Jefferson City, Missouri 65101

Dear Ms. Spieler -

I object to Senate Bill 36 being placed on the Senate Consent Calendar as reported in the Senate Journal of Feb. 14, 2005. I believe it to be of a controversial nature.

I ask that the bill be returned to the Senate Education Committee, which reported the bill out with consent status.

In Gratitude,

/s/ Chuck Graham

Sen. Chuck Graham

District 19
