To repeal section 253.095, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to park services.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 253.095, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 253.095, to read as follows:
253.095. In order to further the interpretive or educational functions of Missouri state parks, the director of the Missouri department of natural resources is authorized to enter into agreements with private, not-for-profit organizations that are organized [solely] to provide cooperative, interpretive, facility enhancement or educational services to any [one] Missouri state park. The director may provide state park facility space and incidental staff support to such an organization under a cooperative agreement, which reimburses the department for the actual costs of such space and incidental staff support and clearly demonstrates the fiscal, interpretive, educational, and facility enhancement benefits to the state. Net proceeds received from the sale of publications or other materials and services provided by an organization pursuant to such an agreement entered into under this section shall be retained by the organization for use in the interpretive or educational services provided [to such park that the organization is designated to serve] in state parks.
