TRULY AGREED

HB 1428 -- MEMORIAL FOR KILLED OR INJURED WORKERS; CHILD LABOR

This bill authorizes the construction of a permanent memorial on
the Missouri Capitol grounds for workers killed or permanently
disabled on the job in Missouri.

The bill establishes the Workers Memorial Committee and
specifies the selection process and composition of the committee
members.  The committee is responsible for organizing a
competition for the design of the memorial.  Members of the
committee will not be compensated but will be reimbursed for
actual and necessary expenses in the performance of official
duties.

A Workers Memorial Fund is established in the state treasury.
The State Treasurer will invest moneys in the fund in a manner
similar to other state funds.  Interest accruing to the fund and
moneys in the fund will not revert to the General Revenue Fund
at the end of each biennium.

The bill also removes participation as a player in a youth
sporting event from the list of services not covered by the
definition of "employ" in the Child Labor Law.

HB 1428 -- MEMORIAL FOR INJURED OR KILLED WORKERS (Hickey)

The bill also establishes the Workers Memorial Committee and
specifies the composition of the committee.  The committee is
responsible for organizing a competition concerning the design
of the memorial.  Members of the committee will not be
