Current Bill Summary

SB 671 - Currently, there is a Kansas and Missouri Regional Investment District Compact. Under, this act, if the state of Kansas has not enacted the compact by August 28, 2007, the district shall still be created and shall be entitled the "Missouri Regional Investment District".

This act adds Buchanan County to the list of political subdivisions which are considered regional investment districts. The act also provides the areas of Kansas which will be included in the district if Kansas adopts the compact.

All members of the commission governing the Regional Investment District shall be from a jurisdiction in a state that has adopted the compact.

Currently, counties in the district may, upon voter approval, submit a sales tax not to exceed one-half of one percent to support a regional program for a public transit system. This act removes a provision stating that such a sales tax shall not be levied by any county unless a majority of the qualified electors of at least Johnson and Wyandotte Counties in Kansas and Jackson County in Missouri approve the such a levy.

This act is identical to HB 1009 (2007) and certain provisions of SS/SCS/HB 69 (2007) & CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 22 (2007).
