HCS/SB 322 - This act modifies several provisions relating to construction-related activities.
Under this act, he Second State Capitol Commission is allowed to control copyrights and trademarks for any photograph, written work, art object, or any product created of the Capitol or Capitol grounds by granting access or use of the work. Any money received must be deposited into the Capitol Commission Fund to be used for repairs, refurbishment, or creation of decorations or adornments for the Capitol or its grounds. The act renames the Division of Facilities Management to the Division of Facilities Management, Design, and Construction and expands its responsibilities to include the supervision of any design, construction, renovation, or repair of state facilities. An open bidding process will be used for all projects in excess of $100,000. For projects costing between $25,000 and $100,000, a minimum of three contractors must be solicited with the contract awarded to the lowest, responsive, responsible bidder.
This act further modifies other provisions relating to construction-related activities by extending the commercial zone surrounding the City of St. Louis 25 miles beyond its city limits. The current law extends the commercial zone 18 miles beyond the St. Louis city limits. The act further extends the commercial zone throughout St. Charles County. The act also establishes a commercial zone east of the city limits of Missouri City along state route 210 and northwest from the intersection of state route 210 and state route 10 to include the boundaries of Excelsior Springs.
