INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE KENNEDY.

ANNE C. WALKER, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 286, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the department of
labor and industrial relations, with an emergency clause.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 286, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as
section 286.300, to read as follows:
286.300. There is hereby created within the department of labor and industrial relations a
"Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Administrative Fund" which shall be
administered by the director of the department of labor and industrial relations. Moneys
in the fund shall only be expended by the department of labor and industrial relations to
administer the laws under the jurisdiction of the department and to provide goods and
services which relate to the administration of these laws. The fund shall consist of revenues
derived from privileges, conveniences, contracts, goods or services provided by the
department of labor and industrial relations or any of the department's agencies to any
governmental entity, public or private entities; moneys received as gifts, grants, bequests or
contributions from private, federal, county or municipal entities; or other moneys which
are transferred or paid to the department of labor and industrial relations or any of the
department's agencies. The state treasurer shall be the custodian of the fund and shall
provide disbursement from the fund at the request of the director of the department of
labor and industrial relations for the reimbursement of goods and services necessary for
the administration of the laws within the jurisdiction of the department of labor and
industrial relations. Quarterly transfers from departmental funds and general revenue, if
appropriate, shall be made on the first day of each quarter of the state fiscal year, except
that funding for one-time, extraordinary or nonoperating expenses may be transferred in
the first quarter in its entire annual amount. The provisions of section 33.080, RSMo, to
the contrary notwithstanding, money in this fund shall not be transferred and placed to the
credit of general revenue until the amount in the fund at the end of the fiscal year exceeds
one and one quarter times the appropriations from the fund for the preceding fiscal year.
The amount, if any, in the fund which shall lapse is that amount in the fund which exceeds
the appropriate multiple of the appropriations from the fund for the preceding fiscal year.
Interest accruing to the fund shall be part of the fund. The director of the department of
labor and industrial relations shall include a reporting of all receipts and expenditures
from the fund in the department's annual budget.
Section B. Because immediate action is necessary to allow the department of labor and industrial
relations to implement the cost savings and efficiencies provided by this legislation for fiscal year
2000, section A of 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 section A of this act shall be in full force and effect upon its
passage and approval or July 1, 1999, whichever occurs later.
