To amend chapter 226, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to interstate public rest areas.
Section A. Chapter 226, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 226.003, to read as follows:
226.003. Notwithstanding any other provision of law or rule to the contrary, the department of transportation is
hereby prohibited from contracting with private entities or vendors to operate truck stops, fueling stations,
convenience stores or restaurants on or near interstate public rest areas. The department shall examine and
research the Vermont and Utah state programs, which have phased out interstate public rest areas and instead have
implemented a public/private partnership with designated interstate rest exits. Nothing in this section shall prohibit
the department from maintaining existing interstate public rest areas or constructing new interstate public rest
areas consistent with this section.
