Journal of the Senate

FIRST REGULAR SESSION



THIRTY-FIFTH DAY—TUESDAY, MARCH 8, 2005





       The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

       Senator Scott in the Chair.

       Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

          About prayer, Evelyn Underhill wrote: “In it the soul feeds upon God. Draws new vitality from the source of all life. The citizen who is so strengthened is worth more to this state than the one whose roots do not strike deep into eternity.”

          Gracious God, as we are at the mid point of our work here help us to spend some time in silence with You, our God. Let our “roots strike deep” into You so we too may be of greater worth to this State and the people we serve. And may we gain strength for the many tasks still ahead of us. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.

       The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited.

       A quorum being established, the Senate proceeded with its business.

CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS

       Senators Bray, Dougherty, Wheeler, Green, Coleman, Days, Wilson, Graham, Kennedy and Callahan offered the following concurrent resolution:

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 9

          WHEREAS, the State of Missouri recognizes that over 1,033,886 residents of all ages in this state receive guaranteed Social Security benefits which allow them to live without sinking into poverty or suffering from a diminished quality of life because of retirement, disability, or the death of a parent or spouse; and

          WHEREAS, Social Security protects Missourians by providing guaranteed benefits not only for retirees, but also for 184,858 disabled workers and their families, as well as for almost 90,000 children in our state; and

          WHEREAS, Social Security is particularly critical to the 420,699 Missouri women who receive benefits since women typically live longer, earn less money, and generally spend less time in the labor force due to child care responsibilities; and

          WHEREAS, Social Security is a progressive program that continues to pay guaranteed benefits for the duration of the recipients' lifetimes, that is indexed for inflation, that functions with extreme efficiency, and that currently operates with a surplus; and

          WHEREAS, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicts that there will be no shortfall until 2052, when Social Security will be able to pay only 80% of recipients' benefits due to insufficient revenue from payroll tax; and

          WHEREAS, in the past, the Social Security Trust Fund has encountered similar challenges, including larger projected shortfalls during the 1980's, which were resolved without privatization schemes and without reducing guaranteed benefits for the elderly, disabled, and children; and

          WHEREAS, the Bush Administration's proposals to partially privatize Social Security through the creation of private accounts cannot guarantee returns that equal or exceed recipients' guaranteed benefits through the current Social Security system; and

          WHEREAS, the creation of such a private accounts system would entail a massive cost to our country, adding an estimated $2 trillion to our national deficit which would take an estimated 60 years to pay back; and

          WHEREAS, future Social Security recipients would also pay a much higher cost for private accounts than for the guaranteed benefits current recipients receive since the current system spends just 0.6 cents of every dollar on administrative costs while a private accounts system would waste at least 5 cents of every dollar; and

          WHEREAS, under President Bush's proposal, guaranteed Social Security protections to the elderly, disabled, survivors, and children will gradually erode for future generations driving millions of Americans into poverty and destroying the most successful social insurance program ever created in the United States:

          NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninety-Third General Assembly, First Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby call upon the Missouri Congressional Delegation to recognize the unique features of Social Security: guaranteed benefits, protection from market fluctuations, inflation indexing, lifelong protection in case of disability, death of a spouse or parent, and insufficient retirement income, progressive benefits that are linked to earnings and that cannot lose value over the recipient's lifetime; and

          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Missouri General Assembly calls upon the Missouri Congressional Delegation to oppose restructuring the Social Security Trust Fund to create private accounts that reduce guaranteed benefits for hundreds of thousands of Missourians, especially women and children who will be disproportionately affected and who depend on Social Security for their survival and well-being; and

          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Missouri Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for President George W. Bush, the members of the Missouri Congressional Delegation, and Governor Matt Blunt.

       Senator Scott offered the following concurrent resolution:

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 10

          WHEREAS, the inconsistent wireless telecommunication service throughout rural areas of the state provides for an erratic coverage area for rural customers; and

          WHEREAS, to make available more dependable wireless telecommunication service to rural customers of this state, telecommunication service providers must have access to support aimed at providing such service to higher cost areas; and

          WHEREAS, to enable wireless telecommunication providers to invest in infrastructure to better serve the rural customers of this state, the Missouri legislature seeks to more easily certify telecommunication service providers as eligible telecommunication carriers thereby subjecting those service providers to the universal service fund:

          NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninety-Third General Assembly, First Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby urge the public service commission to adopt rules governing the application process by which telecommunication providers can be certified as "eligible telecommunications carriers" and who, in turn, can be subject to universal service fund support. The rules adopted by the Commission shall utilize the minimum requirements for eligibility adopted and published by the Federal Communications Commission, consistent with the recommendations of the Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service for eligibility; and

          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Missouri Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for the members of the Public Service Commission.
