This bill establishes the Missouri State Park Board, created by

aspects of the Historical Marker Program.  The board will consist

The Department of Natural Resources and other state agencies are
prohibited from erecting, modifying, or removing any state

site under its control or located on state land listed on the
board's registry without first holding a public hearing and
receiving the board's approval.  The department must publish a
public hearing notice in the Missouri Register at least 60 days
in advance of any action to seek the board's approval.  The
notice must also be published once a week for two consecutive
weeks in any qualified newspaper in the area where the monument
is located.

Anyone who knowingly removes, defaces, or destroys any registered
state historic military monument, memorial, or marker without the
approval of the General Assembly or the board will be guilty of a
class A misdemeanor.
