Current Bill Summary


HCS/SB 739 - Currently, upon approval of the board of aldermen, a fire department employee shall not be required to live within the department boundaries if the only public school district in the area has been unaccredited or provisionally accredited in the last five years of the person's employment.

Under this act, no employee who has worked for the department for seven years shall be required to live within the department boundaries if the only public school district in the area has been unaccredited or provisionally accredited in the last five years of the person's employment. Employees who have satisfied the seven-year requirement and who choose to reside outside the department boundaries shall reside within a one-hour response time.

The act removes the provision allowing the voters of St. Louis City to prevent the enactment of these provisions in the city, and requiring the employees of the city to forfeit 1% of their salaries in order to reside outside of the city.
