Current Bill Summary

SCR 15 - Relating to the Missouri Rehabilitation Center. SCS/SJR 1 - This resolution would submit a constitutional amendment which, if approved by Missouri voters, would extend the collection of the one-tenth cent state sales tax for state parks and soil conservation indefinitely. The current authorization for this tax will expire on November 8, 1998. The sales tax is also expanded to include local parks in all counties and storm water control for first class counties.

The distribution of the sales tax revenue will be as follows:

(1) 22.5% to first class counties and St. Louis City for storm water control;

(2) 22.5% to soil conservation;

(3) 37.5% for state parks; and

(4) 17.5% for local parks. In first class counties with a population over 400,000 (St. Louis County and Jackson County), 50% of the money will be divided between the cities and 50% will stay in the county to be used for county-owned and county- maintained parks.
