HCS/SCS/SB 275 - This act allows any unexpended balances in the Missouri Office of Prosecution Services (MOPS) Fund and Revolving Fund to remain in the respective account and not transfer to General Revenue; names the State Treasurer as custodian of the MOPS Fund; specifies that any interest shall be credited to the MOPS Fund; specifies that no moneys from General Revenue shall be used to fund staff positions for the office; and deletes the provision that the office staff shall consist of "not more than three persons".
Assistant prosecuting attorneys are not required to meet the
same qualifications as prosecuting attorneys. The act deletes
provisions which are outdated due to demographic changes, and
makes other technical revisions to current laws concerning
prosecuting attorneys, and clarifies the effective date of full-
time prosecutor status in Pettis County.
