WHEREAS, when the results of the poll taken among the Baseball Writers of America were announced on Tuesday, January 5th, George Brett had received 98% of the vote, in his first year of eligibility, placing him 4th in the history of all time vote getters in the poll of all those elected since 1936, behind Tom Sievers, Nolan Ryan and Ty Cobb; and

WHEREAS, George Brett, a native of California, came to Kansas City to join the Kansas City Royals in 1974 via the Royals AAA Farm Club in Omaha, Nebraska; and

WHEREAS, George Brett immediately became a star in a career spanning 21 seasons highlighted by 3,154 hits, three batting titles and a Most Valuable Player Award; and

WHEREAS, George Brett in his playing career established far more records than could be placed in any one Resolution, and including being the only major league player ever to win batting crowns in three different decades, selected to play in 13 All-Star Games, established a career high batting average of .390 in 1980, second highest, since .406 by Ted Williams in 1941, collecting a hit off 661 different pitchers and a home run off 211 different hurlers on his way to collecting 3,154 hits and establishing a .305 career batting average; and

WHEREAS, George Brett, in becoming the first Kansas City Royal to achieve baseball immortality by reaching the Hall of Fame, establishes himself as more than George Brett, the baseball hero, but makes even greater history as George Brett, the legendary man, kind, humble, gentlemanly, courteous, generous to all, particularly interested in children, and in all humanitarian causes for the good of Kansas City, its citizens, and his fans;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the members of the Missouri Senate, pause in their deliberations to salute the outstanding accomplishments of a great and good Kansas Citian, George Brett, Mr. Kansas City Royal, express sincere congratulations and delight on his election to Baseball's Hall of Fame, and extend to George Brett, his wife Leslie, and their sons, Jackson, Dylan and Robin, many long years continued success, good health and happiness; and

CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS

Senators Ehlmann and Klarich offered the following concurrent resolution, which was read:

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 3

WHEREAS, the federal Clean Air Act, as amended, requires the United States Environmental Protection Agency to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards; and

WHEREAS, the St. Louis metropolitan area is currently designated as a nonattainment area with regard to the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for low-level atmospheric ozone; and

WHEREAS, the General Assembly has devoted considerable effort and attention during the last five years to authorizing air pollution control measures needed to improve air quality in the St. Louis nonattainment area, including the enactment of SB 590 from 1994 which authorizes an enhanced motor vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance program; and

WHEREAS, the Department of Natural Resources is currently implementing the enhanced motor vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance program, a key component of the comprehensive State Implementation Plan designed to bring the area into attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards; and

WHEREAS, the Sierra Club and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment filed suit on November 12, 1998 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to: compel the United States Environmental Protection Agency to redesignate St. Louis as a "serious" non-attainment area; require the state to submit a new State Implementation Plan which includes all the air pollution reduction measures required for serious nonattainment areas; postpone approval of any Transportation Implementation Plan until the new State Implementation Plan has been approved; and impose the "emissions offset" penalty and the loss of highway funding penalty on the St. Louis nonattainment area; and

WHEREAS, the state's flexibility in choosing appropriate air pollution measures will be impaired by reclassification of the St. Louis nonattainment area as "serious" with the attendant increase the mandatory reduction measures; and

WHEREAS, the emissions offset penalty will require any new business or industry which seeks to locate in the St. Louis area to arrange for reduction of air emissions from existing sources which is greater than the emissions the new business or industry will make, thereby significantly hampering or perhaps eliminating the siting of new businesses or industries in the area, thereby undermining the area economy; and

WHEREAS, the loss of federal highway funding for the St. Louis area will cripple the state's ability to maintain needed roadways and to create new transportation facilities, which may lead to greater traffic congestion, worsening the air quality problems in the area;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate of the Ninetieth General Assembly, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that Governor Mel Carnahan is hereby urged to immediately seek to intervene in this federal litigation, to support the defendant in this litigation which would enable the defendant to continue to implement the federal Clean Air Act in a manner which properly serves the interests of society to protect public health and the environment while encouraging economic growth and development; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Attorney General is urged to provide any and all necessary legal assistance to the Department of Natural Resources to initiate and sustain any such intervention;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate be instructed to provide properly inscribed copies of this resolution to the Governor, the Director of the Department of Natural Resources and the Attorney General.
