INTRODUCED

HJR 54 -- Soils, Water, and Parks Sales Tax (CORRECTED)

Sponsor:  Reynolds

The 1/10-cent soils, water, and parks sales tax will expire on
November 8, 1998.  This proposed constitutional amendment
extends the tax to January 1, 2017, and changes the distribution
of tax revenue.  Minimum allocations for the existing state park
and soil conservation funds are set at 85% of current levels.
Additional revenue is divided equally among state parks, soil
conservation, and new allocations for stormwater control and
local parks.

Funds for local parks are distributed among counties on a per--
capita basis, and within each county among municipalities and
the county on a per-capita basis.  Funds for stormwater control
are distributed among counties and St. Louis City on a per--
capita basis.  Stormwater funds for St. Louis County and City
are to be used by the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District
according to an annual budget plan approved by the City Board of
Aldermen, the County Council, and the Board of the County
Municipal League.  For other counties, stormwater funds may be
used by the governing body of the county or assigned to the
local soil and water conservation district.
