COMMITTEE

CO-SPONSORS:  McLuckie (Kreider)

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on Consumer
Protection by a vote of 14 to 0.

This substitute allows counties of the third classification to
adopt and enforce building codes.  The county commission may
appoint a building commission to develop and propose building
and electrical codes.  The county commission may, after public
hearing, vote to adopt a proposed code and will submit the
question to the voters at the next county-wide primary or
general election.  Alternatively, the voters of any county may
present an initiative petition signed by at least 10% of
registered voters to place the question on the ballot at the
next general election.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

class counties the option of adopting building and electrical
codes.  They also say that an absence of codes allows builders
to construct dangerous structures or structures of poor quality.

Testifying for the bill were Representative Kreider; Missouri
Society of Professional Engineers; Consulting Engineers Council
of Missouri; St. Louis Area Contractors; American Institute of
Architects of Missouri; Fire Marshal Association of Missouri;
Homeowners Against Deficient Dwellings; and Missouri Committee
