Establishing the City's priorities for proposed legislation that the City encourages the General Assembly to adopt during the 2007 Missouri Legislative Session.

 

WHEREAS, the Missouri General Assembly will convene January 3, 2007, and the City, during the process of establishing its legislative priorities, seeks to propose legislation for adoption during the 2007 Session; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Council of Kansas City hereby adopts the following positions on legislation that it will seek to propose for its legislative priorities for the 2007 Missouri Legislative Session:

 

1. The authorization to establish code enforcement boards for the purpose of adjudicating property maintenance and nuisance code violations.

2. The requirement that the driving privileges of a tow truck operator be suspended if such operator is found guilty of violating a municipal ordinance prohibiting tow truck operators from stopping at, or proceeding to, the scene of an accident unless they have been requested to stop or proceed to such scene by a party involved in such accident or by an officer of a public safety agency.

 

3. The opposition to all legislation that would restrict the development of Life Sciences in Missouri, including proposals to limit Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer research aimed at developing more effective therapies and cures for disease and disability; and

 

4. The opposition to any efforts that restrict the use of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) for economic development or redevelopment but support for meaningful reforms that implement statewide the citys current TIF policies and procedures; and

 

5. The securing of a state supplemental Tax Increment Financing (TIF) appropriation and increasing of the overall statutory funding cap for the state supplemental TIF program to accommodate the Antioch Mall project and the 63rd and Prospect Citadel Place project; and

 

6. The funding of the MoDESA increment for the Power and Light District out of the States Supplemental Downtown Development Fund; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City will continue to seek State funding for major public capital improvement projects and opportunities to maximize State funding of other important City projects and programs; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof, and that copies hereof be distributed to the elected members of the Missouri General Assembly from the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area as evidence of the Citys position on these important matters.
