SB 1203 - This act authorizes political subdivisions, by majority vote of their governing body, to elect to cover emergency police dispatchers and jailors as policemen members, and emergency fire dispatchers and emergency medical service personnel as firemen members, for purposes of coverage under the Missouri local government employees' retirement system.

Such an election shall become effective on the first day of the calendar month specified by the governing body, the first day of the calendar month following receipt by the board of the election certification, or the date that the political subdivision elected to have its eligible employees covered by the system, whichever is later.
