RESOLUTION NO. 100052

 

Authorizing the City Attorney to take any legal actions he determines appropriate to challenge the lawfulness of any initiative petitions that would impact the City’s ability to continue its earnings and profits tax.

 

WHEREAS, a series of initiative petitions has been filed with the Missouri Secretary of State calling for various amendments to state law which could result in the elimination of the City’s earnings and profits taxes;

 

WHEREAS, these initiative petitions provide no replacement for the revenue that would be lost from repeal of the earnings and profits tax; and

 

WHEREAS, the earnings and profits tax provides a major portion of the City’s general revenue, and the loss of earnings and profits tax revenue would impair the City’s ability to provide essential government services to its citizens; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Attorney is authorized to take any legal actions he determines appropriate to challenge any and all initiative petitions that would eliminate or limit the City’s ability to continue the earnings and profits tax.
