Repealing Section 2-53, Code of Ordinances, entitled “Limitation on contributions for mayor and council elections” to reflect the establishment of a new reporting system established by the Missouri General Assembly.


LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, CONSENT"
Bill Geary, Law Department, testified on behalf of this ordinance. In January, 2006, the council adopted campaign finance legislation of limits by the State of Missouri. The state's action was found to be unlawful by the Missouri Supreme Court, making the city's ordinance inconsistent with prior law. This ordinance will reinstate the prior ordinance.
