Journal of the House


Second Regular Session, 93rd General Assembly




SIXTY-THIRD DAY, Thursday, April 27, 2006

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Representative Behnen in the Chair.


            Prayer by Father Donald W. Lammers.


Today is Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day


              Let us pray.


              Almighty God, You are our Father and Father of all people. We thank You for being the Heavenly Father of our children. Thank You for giving them to us. Help us to be good parents. In Your mercy, please make up for what is lacking in our parenting.


              As representatives of all the people in our districts, we are painfully aware of the children who are poor. Some lack material needs, some lack love and stable family life, some lack both. In many ways they depend on us. Lord God, give us the wisdom to know how to help them, so that their poverty is overcome, their entire life is enhanced and their dignity is protected. We pray that all children can be filled with laughter and joy.


              We pray to You, our God forever and ever. 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: Blake Koetting, Drake Thaller Taylor, Joshua Davis, Caleb Davis, Bill David Reynolds, JaWon Johnson, Tamera Luster, Ashlea Whittenburg, Jenny Aubuchon, Sara Nelson, Lexi Warner, Elizabeth DiMaggio, Amelia Chiles, Cynthia Claire Youmans, Courtney Cox, David Baker, John Loehner, Brandon Gleason, Valerie Wilson, Landon Franz, Lauren Franz, Lucy Dowing, Liam Johnston, Emma Bryant, David Peck, Rachel Booth, Eric Grumke, Ben Clewell, Rachel Mehringer, Hannah Denkler, Melanie Rowden, Meghan LeVota, Madeline LeVota, Eric Edsen, Haylen Mead, Khalisha Scott, Kadin Avery Storm, Gavin Guier, Jaisen Guier, Damon A. Jones, II, Cade Bradford Crowell, Audrey Kathryn Felker and Devin Rose.

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 46


              WHEREAS, in a recent study, the United States Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) found that one in four credit reports contain serious errors; and


              WHEREAS, the United States Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1971 governs credit reporting agencies, including Experian, Equifax, and Trans Union which are the three largest credit reporting agencies in the United States with national databases; and


              WHEREAS, the Fair Credit Reporting Act was amended in 2003 by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) to address the ever-increasing problem of identify theft. FACTA included stronger protections for consumers by increasing the responsibility of the credit reporting agencies to investigate consumer disputes; and


              WHEREAS, under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, both the credit reporting agencies and the credit information providers, such as banks, finance companies, department stores, taxing authorities, landlords, and other credit grantors, are responsible for correcting inaccurate or incomplete information in credit reports; and


              WHEREAS, under the FACTA provisions, a consumer may dispute erroneous or inaccurate information directly with the credit information provider or with the credit reporting agency. Upon notice of disputed information, the credit information provider or credit reporting agency must investigate the items in question and cannot report negative information while the investigation is pending; and


              WHEREAS, upon completion of an investigation, the consumer is provided with written results of the investigation and a free copy of the consumer's credit report if the investigation results in a change in the consumer's credit report; and


              WHEREAS, since December 2004, financial institutions that extend credit must send consumers a notice before and no later than 30 days after negative information is furnished to a credit reporting agency, such as late payments, missed payments, partial payments, or any other form of default; and


              WHEREAS, while these changes are an important step in protecting consumers against errors and inaccuracies in their credit reports, the federal act does not go far enough to ensure a timely correction of any errors in a credit report by the credit reporting agencies and credit information providers; and


              WHEREAS, without provisions requiring the timely correction of errors and inaccuracies by credit reporting agencies and credit information providers, consumers could still face months or even years of red tape in correcting errors and inaccuracies, resulting in denials of extension of consumer credit based on errors and inaccuracies in credit reports; and


              WHEREAS, to fully protect consumers from an unfair loss of credit worthiness based on erroneous and inaccurate credit reports, credit reporting agencies and credit information providers must be subject to strict time limitations for the posting of information and correcting erroneous and inaccurate information contained in consumer credit reports:


              NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the House of Representatives of the Ninety-third General Assembly, Second Regular Session, the Senate concurring therein, hereby urges the United States Congress to further amend the Fair Credit Reporting Act to impose strict time limits on credit reporting agencies and credit information providers regarding the posting of information and the correction of erroneous and inaccurate information contained in consumer credit reports; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for each member of the Missouri Congressional Delegation.

HOUSE RESOLUTION NO. 1930


              WHEREAS, Hurricane Katrina exposed the weakness of concentrated petroleum refining capacity in common risk-prone areas, such as the Gulf Coast, and the value of locating refineries in more inland areas; and


              WHEREAS, in an industry which operates in global markets, United States refiners are unable to meet the growth in demand for refined petroleum products in the United States and gaps in supply are filled by imports; and


              WHEREAS, as global economies expand, there will be increased competition for imports. Based on publicly available data, nearly 1.5 million barrels per day of additional refining capacity projects are planned or under consideration for the 2005-2011 time period; and


              WHEREAS, while domestic expansion of our petroleum refining capacity is vital, existing infrastructure for both crude oil and refined product distribution imposes economic limitations on where new refineries could be located; and


              WHEREAS, policies are needed to create a climate conducive to investments to expand domestic refining capacity, such as reform of the New Source Review (NSR) permitting program to streamline the permit process and alignment of National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) ozone deadlines; and

 

              WHEREAS, due to the location of both four domestic and one Canadian crude oil pipelines, as well as three pipelines that traverse the State of Missouri, Missouri has many advantages for the placement of petroleum refining facilities; and


              WHEREAS, Missouri's close proximity to mature oil industry states such as Oklahoma and Kansas provide optimum access to suppliers and services; and


              WHEREAS, with ample rural and low population areas, Missouri provides geographic buffering while still being located closely to population centers that allow for a sufficient workforce as well as cultural options:


              NOW, THEREFORE, RESOLVED that we, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives, Ninety-third General Assembly, stand ready to work with the petroleum industry associations and petroleum refiners for the purpose of generating jobs, strengthening the economy, increasing the capacity for domestic refining, and reducing America's dependence on refined petroleum products; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Missouri General Assembly encourages all local, state, and federal regulatory bodies to streamline all permitting and other administrative processes applicable to the placement and operation of petroleum refining capacity, aligned infrastructures, and businesses; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Missouri General Assembly is ready to facilitate all reasonable approaches to addressing any concerns regarding logistics, demographics, transportation, and infrastructure; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for Stephen L. Johnson, Administrator of the federal Environmental Protection Agency, Samuel W. Bodman, the Secretary of the United States Department of Energy, Doyle Childers, Director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Fred Ferrell, the Director of the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the American Petroleum Institute, and the Missouri Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association.

HOUSE RESOLUTION NO. 558


              WHEREAS, conclusive evidence shows that tobacco smoke causes cancer, respiratory disease, various cardiac and vascular diseases, adverse birth outcomes, allergies and irritations to the eyes, nose, and throat for both the smoker and nonsmoker exposed to environmental tobacco smoke; and


              WHEREAS, according to the federal government, 83% of worker health complaints related to indoor air quality are linked to smoking. Elimination of environmental tobacco smoke would substantially reduce adverse health complications, including but not limited to severe headaches, upper respiratory ailments, cancer, and heart disease; and

 

              WHEREAS, increasing awareness of the dangers of passive smoking over the past few years has led to many companies, schools, and public buildings to implement a no-smoking policy; and


              WHEREAS, according to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services:

 

              (1) Smoking is Missouri's leading cause of premature death;


              (2) 10,000 Missourians die from tobacco-related diseases every year. That's 28 Missouri deaths per day and one Missourian every hour dying from tobacco use;


              (3) Each year the death toll from tobacco use in Missouri is higher than automobile accidents, AIDS, illegal drugs, suicides, fires, and homicides combined;


              (4) Secondhand smoke causes about 1,200 Missouri deaths annually; and


              WHEREAS, the resulting health care, disability, lost productivity, and revenue costs for Missouri are enormous - $206 million in Medicaid costs and $1.5 billion in total medical costs; and


              WHEREAS, Missouri's high smoking rates (27.2%) contribute to the state's ranking well above the United States average (23.2%), and contribute to the four leading causes of death in Missouri to be heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic respiratory diseases; and


              WHEREAS, elimination of the exposure of nonsmokers to environmental or secondhand smoke is one of the keys to improving the overall health of Missourians; and


              WHEREAS, to ensure an indoor clean air environment for everyone who works at or visits the Missouri State Capitol Building, the Capitol should be declared a smoke-free building:


              NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives, Ninety-third General Assembly, urge the Governor as the chair of the Board of Public Buildings to declare the Missouri State Capitol Building to be a smoke-free building; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for Governor Matt Blunt.


            Mr. Speaker: Your Committee on Rules, to which was referred HR 2439, begs leave to report it has examined the same and recommends that it Do Pass.


HOUSE RESOLUTION NO. 2439


              WHEREAS, in order to help fund the reauthorization of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000 proposed in the FY 2007 federal budget, the United States Forest Service has proposed to sell more than 300,000 acres of national forest lands nationwide; and


              WHEREAS, of the more than 300,000 acres of national forest lands proposed for sale nationwide, 21,566 acres of the 1.5 million-acre Mark Twain National Forest are included in the sale proposal, which is the fourth highest total acreage proposed for sale among the 34 states impacted; and

 

              WHEREAS, only California (79,362 acres), Idaho (25,464 acres), and Colorado (21,572 acres) have more national forest acreage proposed for sale. However, Missouri tops the list of the 34 states impacted in the percentage of total national forest acres in a state proposed for sale at 1.45%, compared to California at 0.38%, Colorado at 0.16%, and Idaho at 0.12%; and


              WHEREAS, payments under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000 are intended to make up for property tax revenue that counties lose because they host public lands. Last year, the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000 brought Missouri $2.7 million that was divided among 29 Missouri counties with national forest land, according to the Office of Administration; and


              WHEREAS, currently, counties with national forest lands receive payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILT) funds and a considerable percentage of funds collected by the Forest Service for timber sales and mining royalties from public lands located in the counties; and


              WHEREAS, under the current Forest Service sale proposal, the distribution of proceeds from the sale of public lands is not proportionately tied to the counties in which the lands are located. Rather, the proceeds of the sales would go into the United States Treasury for distribution to rural school districts that are in dire financial straits; and


              WHEREAS, under the Forest Service plan, Missouri would rank near the top of acres to be sold in comparison to other states and would rank near the bottom of moneys received from the sale of national forest acreage; and


              WHEREAS, in addition to the economic disparity, the sale of a portion of the Mark Twain National Forest represents a loss of valuable wildlife resources in Missouri. With the timber, rolling hills, scattered grasslands, streams, and wildflowers and a haven for deer, turkeys, bobcats, and other deep-woods denizens, the Mark Twain National Forest is one of Missouri's most important environmental treasures; and


              WHEREAS, the Mark Twain National Forest acreage proposed for sale in Missouri is part of a once-depleted forest that public financing and decades of management have nurtured back to health. In the 1930s, the federal government bought parcels of generally unwanted land that was officially established as the Mark Twain National Forest on September 11, 1939, with most of its 1.5 million acres in located in eight districts in southern Missouri; and


              WHEREAS, currently, less than 5% of Missouri's total acreage is in public ownership, which includes state lands, Missouri Department of Conservation land, state parks, University of Missouri land, and all federal lands such as national forests, wildlife refuges, and national monuments; and


              WHEREAS, with more than 95% of the land in Missouri in private ownership, most lands in Missouri are not open to public access by hikers, mushroom gatherers, hunters, anglers, and nature enthusiasts. The sale of a portion of the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri would further reduce an already limited access to public lands for the recreational use and enjoyment of Missourians, visitors, and tourists; and


              WHEREAS, on March 17, 2006, Missouri Governor Matt Blunt sent a letter to Mark Rey, undersecretary for Natural Resources and Environment at the United States Department of Agriculture stating his opposition to the sale of national forest lands in Missouri and several members of the Missouri Congressional Delegation have denounced the plan:


              NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives, Ninety-third General Assembly, declare our opposition to the proposed sale of 21,566 acres of national forest lands in the State of Missouri under the United States Forest Service plan to sell more than 300,000 acres of national forest lands nationwide to fund the reauthorization of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000 proposed in the FY 2007 federal budget; and


              BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for Dale Bosworth, Chief of the United States Forest Service.


            Mr. Speaker: Your Committee on Rules, to which was referred HCS HJR 31, begs leave to report it has examined the same and recommends that it Do Pass.
