CCS/HS/HCS/SB 881 - This act allows funding of motor pool operations by the Public Mass Transportation Trust Fund. The Public Mass Transportation Trust Fund is for the primary benefit of a public mass transportation system in Kansas City.
Currently, the law limits the amount of sales tax collected to six and one-half percent of the moneys deposited in the fund to motor pool operations. Motor pool operations is a special transportation service provided by a city to certain residents of a city including transporting elderly persons and persons with disabilities. This act eliminates the six and one-half percent limitation on motor pool operations funding. The Public Mass Transportation Trust Fund is financed by a sales tax imposed on personal property or taxable services.
This act also revises the composition of the Kansas City
Area Transportation Authority as constituted by an interstate
compact. The composition of the authority's board of
commissioners is also modified; terms are shortened from five to
four years, residency requirements for commissioners are
modified, and the Governor is removed from the appointment
process. All appointments would be made by the Mayor of Kansas
City, Missouri, and by the county commissions of counties served
by the authority. This provision is similar to SB 1073 (2000).
