"1. For the purpose of funding family planning services, pregnancy testing and follow-up services, provided that none of these funds appropriated herein may be expended to directly or indirectly subsidize abortion services or administrative expenses. Abortion services include performing, assisting with, or directly referring for abortions, or encouraging or counseling patients to have abortions. Family planning services are services that limit or enhance fertility, including contraception methods, the management of infertility including adoption, preconception counseling, education, and general reproductive health care. Follow-up services are services that supplement initial consultations for family planning services and pregnancy testing but do not include pregnancy or childbirth care. Nondirective counseling relating to pregnancy may be provided. Nondirective counseling is defined as providing patients with a list of health care providers that provide pregnancy and childbirth care, including abortion providers. An organization that receives these funds may not directly refer patients who seek abortion services to any organization that provides abortion services, including its own independent affiliate. None of these funds may be paid or granted to an organization or an affiliate of an organization that provides abortion services. An organization that receives these funds may not display or distribute marketing materials about abortion services to patients. An otherwise qualified organization shall not be disqualified from receipt of these funds because of its affiliation with an organization that provides abortion services, provided that the affiliated organization that provides abortion services is independent as determined by the conditions set forth in this section. To ensure that the state does not lend its imprimatur to abortion services, and to ensure that an organization that provides abortion services does not receive a direct or indirect economic or marketing benefit from these funds, an organization that receives these funds and its independent affiliate that provides abortion services may not share any of the following:

(a) The same or similar name;

(b) Medical or non-medical facilities, including but not limited to business offices, treatment, consultation, examination, and waiting rooms;

(c) Expenses;

(d) Employee wages or salaries;

(e) Equipment or supplies, including but not limited to computers, telephone systems, tele-communications equipment and office supplies; or

(f) Fundraising activities.

An independent affiliate that provides abortion services must be separately incorporated from any organization that receives these funds. An organization that receives these funds must maintain financial records that demonstrate strict compliance with this section and that demonstrate that its independent affiliate that provides abortion services receives no direct or indirect economic or marketing benefit from these funds.

If a person abandons property, as defined in section 304.001, on any real property owned by another without the consent of the owner or person in possession of the property, at the request of the person in possession of the real property, any member of the state highway patrol, state water patrol, sheriff, or other law enforcement officer within his jurisdiction may authorize a towing company to remove such abandoned property from the property in the following circumstances:

(1) The abandoned property is left unattended for more than forty-eight hours; or

(2) In the judgment of a law enforcement officer, the abandoned property constitutes a safety hazard or unreasonably interferes with the use of the real property by the person in possession.

2. The owner of real property or lessee or property or security manager in lawful possession of the real property may authorize a towing company to remove abandoned property or property parked in a restricted or assigned area without authorization by a law enforcement officer only when the owner, lessee or [agent] property or security manager of the real property is present [and]. A property or security manager must be a full-time employee of a business entity. An authorization to tow under this subsection may be made only under any of the following circumstances:

(1) There is displayed, in plain view at all entrances to the property, a sign not less than seventeen by twenty-two inches in size, with lettering not less than one inch in height, prohibiting public parking and indicating that unauthorized abandoned property or property improperly parked in a restricted or assigned area will be removed at the owner's expense, disclosing the maximum fee for all charges related to towing and storage, and containing the telephone number of the local traffic law enforcement agency where information can be obtained; or a twenty-four-hour staffed emergency information telephone number, other than the number of a towing company, by which the owner of the abandoned property or improperly parked property may call to receive information regarding the location of such owner's property; or

The report shall contain the following:

(1) The year, model, make and abandoned property identification number of the property and the owner and any lienholders, if known;

The completed form shall be issued by the authorizing officer to the tow operator for that company's records as proof of authorization to tow a particular vehicle.

4. The law enforcement agency receiving such abandoned property report must record the date the abandoned property report is filed with such agency and within five days of such filing make an inquiry into the national crime information center and any statewide Missouri law enforcement computer system to determine if the abandoned property has been reported as stolen.

7. The law enforcement agency receiving notification that abandoned property has been towed by a towing company shall record the date the property was towed and shall forward a copy of the abandoned property report to the director of revenue.

8. If any owner or lessee of real property authorizes the removal of abandoned property pursuant to subsection 2 of this section and such property is so removed and no sign is displayed prior to such removal as required pursuant to subsection 2 of this section, then the owner or lessee shall be deemed guilty of a class C misdemeanor."; and
