HCS/HB 685 - This modifies various provisions relating to qualifications for public office.
ATTORNEY GENERAL RESIDENCY
Under current law, the Attorney General is required to reside at the seat of government in Jefferson City. This act repeals that requirement.
This provision is identical to a provision in HCS/HB 339 (2021), a provision in HCS/HB 1787 (2020), a provision in HCS/SB 587 (2020), HB 769 (2019), HCS/HBs 1347 & 2144 (2018), HB 797 (2017), and SB 396 (2017) and similar to a provision in HCS/HB 553 (2021).
AGE REQUIREMENT FOR LOCAL OFFICES
Current law requires a person to be over the age of 21 in order to be qualified for various local offices. This act changes that requirement to 21 years of age or older.
These provisions are identical to provisions in HCS/HB 1787 (2020).
The act stipulates that no person shall be appointed to an elected public office who is delinquent in the payment of any state income tax, personal property tax, municipal tax, or real property tax.
