To repeal section 186.055, RSMo Supp. 1996, relating to the humanities trust fund, and to enact
in lieu thereof one new section relating to the same subject, with an emergency clause.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 186.055, RSMo Supp. 1996, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu
thereof, to be known as section 186.055, to read as follows:
186.055. There is hereby established a special trust fund, to be known as the "Missouri Humanities Council Trust Fund", which shall consist of all moneys transferred to the fund by the board of
trustees established in this section, moneys transferred to the fund pursuant to section 186.060,
and any earnings resulting from the investment of moneys in the fund. The fund shall be administered by a board of trustees, consisting of the state treasurer, two members of the senate
appointed by the president pro tem of the senate, two members of the house of representatives
appointed by the speaker of the house and four members of the Missouri humanities council
executive committee appointed by the chair of the council. Any member appointed due to such
person's membership in the senate, house of representatives or humanities council shall serve only
as long as such person holds the office referenced in this section. The state treasurer shall invest
moneys in the fund in a manner as provided by law. Subject to appropriations, moneys in the fund
shall be used solely for the promotion of the humanities in Missouri and for the administrative
costs of the Missouri humanities council. The provisions of section 33.080, RSMo, to the
contrary notwithstanding, money in the Missouri humanities council trust fund shall not be
transferred and placed to the credit of the general revenue fund.
Section B. Because immediate action is necessary to ensure the survival of the Missouri
humanities council, this act is deemed necessary for the immediate preservation of the public
health, welfare, peace and safety, and is hereby declared to be an emergency act within the
meaning of the constitution, and this act shall be in full force and effect upon its passage and
Return to the Missouri House of Representatives
