Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1623 -- Economic Development Tax Boards

Sponsor:  Ellinger

Currently, an economic development tax board established by a
city consists of five members.  This bill specifies that a board
must consist of at least five members but may be increased to
nine.  The number of members must be designated in the order or
ordinance imposing the sales tax authorized under Section
67.1305, RSMo.  One or two members must be appointed by the
school districts within any economic development plan or the area
funded by the sales tax.  Three or five members must be appointed
by the chief elected officer of the city with the consent of the
majority of its governing body.  One or two members must be
appointed by the governing body of the county in which the city
is located.  If a board is already in existence, any increase in
the number of members must be designated in an order or
ordinance.  The bill also specifies the terms and election cycle
for appointing the additional members.
