HJR 52 -- Soils, Water, and Parks Sales Tax

Co-Sponsors:  Lumpe, Gunn

The 1/10-cent soils, water, and parks sales tax will expire on
November 8, 1998.  This proposed constitutional amendment
extends the tax to November 8, 2011, and changes the allocation
of tax revenue.  State parks continue to receive 50%.  The soil
and water conservation portion is incrementally reduced from the
present 50% to 20% in 2001 and thereafter.  New allocations for
water resources and local parks are correspondingly increased to
20% and 10%, respectively, in 2001 and thereafter.

Water resources funds are to be used only for capital
improvements in sewer, water, or stormwater facilities, or for
grants to landowners for erosion control.  Local parks funds are
to be used only for capital improvements in public parks and
recreation facilities.  Both allocations are distributed among
counties and St. Louis City on a per-capita basis, and within
each county among municipalities and the county on a per-capita
basis.  Projects funded with water resources or local parks
revenue require a minimum of 20% in matching local funds.
