Current Bill Summary

SB 615 - This act creates "Flood Resiliency Act" and the "Flood Resiliency Program" for the purpose of increasing flood resiliency along the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and their tributaries and improving statewide flood forecasting and monitoring ability.

The state of Missouri may participate with a political subdivision in the development, construction, or renovation of a flood resiliency project, as defined in the act, if the political subdivision has a plan for such project which has been submitted to and approved by the Director of the Department of Natural Resources. Alternatively, the state may promote such project or initiate its own plan for such project. Such plan shall include a description of the flood resiliency project, as described in the act, and the Director shall approve such a project subject to certain conditions as described in the act. Political subdivisions with approved flood resiliency projects and their partners may receive funds from public and private sources, including the newly created Flood Resiliency Improvement Fund, for the purpose of implementing such projects under the act.

This act is identical to a provision in the truly agreed to and finally passed SS/HB 202 (2023), a provision in HB 1242 (2023), a provision in the truly agreed to and finally passed CCS/HCS/SB 109 (2023), a provision in the truly agreed to and finally passed HS/HCS/SS/SB 138 (2023), a provision in the perfected SS/SB 265 (2023), and HB 2617 (2022), and similar to SB 984 (2022).
