Current Bill Summary

SB 21 - This act adds the cities of Portageville, Riverside, and Fayette to the list of cities authorized to propose a sales tax for the purposes of improving public safety. Such sales tax, if approved by the voters, shall not exceed a rate of 0.5%. (Sections 94.900 and 94.902)

This act also modifies the City Sales Tax Act to allow cities to propose a sales tax for general city purposes at a rate not to exceed one percent instead of at a rate of 0.5%, 0.875%, or 1%. (Section 94.510)

This act contains an emergency clause for a certain section.

This act is identical to HCS/HB 532 (2019) and is substantially similar to a provision contained in SS/SCS/SBs 46 & 50 (2019).
