FIFTY-FIRST DAY, Wednesday, April 4, 2007

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Jetton in the Chair.


            Prayer by Reverend James Earl Jackson.


              Oh, how we love Your teachings, Heavenly Father! They are in our thoughts all day long.


              From Your guiding principles we gain understanding. That is why we are persuaded from every false way.


              Lord, we recognize we can not fulfill our responsibilities on our own: they are sometimes weighty and burdensome. But we are reminded of this truth: You are able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. Your strength is made perfect in our frailties.


              We ask that You fill every waking moment of our lives with Your insights and the awareness of Your continual presence in our lives.


              Now may the Lord of peace continually grant us peace in every circumstance. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with us always. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            The Speaker appointed the following to act as Honorary Pages for the Day, to serve without compensation: Levi Manley, Michael Fultz, Taylor Prince, Wyatt Fleming, Hope Wilson, Emily Cain, Evan Hester, Zach Allen, Scott Harris, Taylor Cox, Meaghan McGuire, Mason McMillin, Jessica Oliphant, Patience Chrisler and Brad Kramer.

              (2) Whenever the governing body of any city or county in which a regional economic development district sales tax has been imposed in the manner provided by this section receives a petition, signed by ten percent of the qualified voters of such city or county calling for an election to repeal such regional economic development district sales tax, the governing body shall, if such repeal will not impair the district's ability to repay any liabilities which it has incurred, money which it has borrowed, or revenue bonds, notes, or other obligations which it has issued to finance any project or projects, submit to the voters of such city or county a proposal to repeal the regional economic development district sales tax imposed under this section.

Payments in lieu of taxes which are due and owing shall constitute a lien against the real property from which such payments in lieu of taxes are derived and shall be collected in the same manner as real property taxes, including the assessment of penalties and interest where applicable. The lien of payments in lieu of taxes may be foreclosed in the same manner as the lien of real property taxes.

              251.624. 1. When all regional economic development project costs and all obligations issued to finance regional economic development project costs have been paid in full, the regional economic development district shall adopt a resolution terminating incremental tax financing for all regional economic development project areas. Immediately upon the adoption of such resolution, all payments in lieu of taxes, all economic activity taxes, and other net new revenues then remaining in the special allocation fund shall be deemed to be surplus funds; thereafter, the rates of the taxing districts shall be extended, and taxes shall be levied, collected, and distributed in the manner applicable in the absence of the adoption of incremental tax financing. Surplus payments in lieu of taxes shall be paid to the county collector who shall immediately thereafter pay such funds to the taxing districts in the regional economic development area selected in the same manner and proportion as the most recent distribution by the collector to the affected taxing districts of real property taxes from real property in the regional economic development area. Surplus economic activity taxes shall be paid to the taxing districts in the regional economic development area in proportion to the then current levy rates of such taxing districts that are attributable to such economic activity taxes.

              251.627. In each of the twenty-five calendar years following the adoption of a resolution adopting incremental tax financing for a regional economic development project area, unless and until incremental tax financing for such regional economic development project area is terminated by resolution of the regional economic development district board, then, in respect to every taxing district containing such regional economic development project area, the county clerk or any other official required by law to ascertain the amount of the equalized assessed value of all taxable property within such regional economic development project area for the purpose of computing any debt service levies to be extended upon taxable property within such regional economic development project area, shall in every year that incremental tax financing is in effect ascertain the amount of value of taxable property in such regional economic development project area by including in such amount the certified total initial equalized assessed value of all taxable real property in such regional economic development project area in lieu of the equalized assessed value of all taxable real property in such regional economic development project area. For the purpose of measuring the size of payments in lieu of taxes under the regional economic development district law, all tax levies shall then be extended to the current equalized assessed value of all property in the regional economic development project area in the same manner as the tax rate percentage is extended to all other taxable property in the taxing district.


              251.630. 1. A regional economic development district may at any time authorize or issue revenue bonds for the purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of any regional economic development project. Every issue of such bonds shall be payable out of the revenues of the regional economic development district and may be further secured by other property of the regional economic development district which may be pledged, assigned, mortgaged, or a security interest granted for such payment, without preference or priority of the first bonds issued, subject to any agreement with the holders of any other bonds pledging any specified property or revenues. Such bonds shall be authorized by resolution of the regional economic development district, and if issued by the regional economic development district, shall bear such date or dates and shall mature at such time or times, but not in excess of twenty-five years, as the resolution shall specify. Such bonds shall be in such denomination, bear interest at such rate or rates, be in such form, either coupon or registered, be issued as current interest bonds, compound interest bonds, variable rate bonds, convertible bonds, or zero coupon bonds, be issued in such manner, be payable in such place or places, and subject to redemption as such resolution may provide notwithstanding the provisions of section 108.170, RSMo. The bonds may be sold at either public or private sale at such interest rates, and at such price or prices as the regional economic development district board shall determine.

              2. Any issue of regional economic development district bonds outstanding may be refunded at any time by the regional economic development district by issuing its refunding bonds in such amount as the regional economic development district may deem necessary. Such bonds may not exceed the amount sufficient to refund the principal of the bonds to be refunded together with any unpaid interest thereon and any premiums, commissions, service fees, and other expenses necessary to be paid in connection with the refunding. Any such refunding may be effected whether the bonds to be refunded then shall have matured or thereafter shall mature, either by sale of the refunding bonds and the application of the proceeds thereof to the payment of the bonds being refunded or by the exchange of the refunding bonds for the bonds being refunded with the consent of the holder or holders of the bonds being refunded. Refunding bonds may be issued regardless of whether the bonds being refunded were issued in connection with the same project or a separate project and regardless of whether the bonds proposed to be refunded shall be payable on the same date or different dates or shall be due serially or otherwise.

              3. Bonds issued under this section shall exclusively be the responsibility of the regional economic development district payable solely out of regional economic development district funds and property as provided in the regional economic development district law and shall not constitute a debt or liability of the state of Missouri or any agency or political subdivision of the state. The regional economic development district shall not be obligated to pay such bonds with any funds other than those specifically pledged to repayment of the bonds. Any bonds issued by a regional economic development district shall state on their face that they are not obligations of the state of Missouri or any agency or political subdivision thereof other than the regional economic development district.

              4. Bonds issued under this section, the interest thereon, or any proceeds from such bonds shall be exempt from taxation in the state of Missouri."; and

This section and chapter 536, RSMo, are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536, RSMo, to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2007, shall be invalid and void.
