Nance: Bill Would Mandate Annual Report From Towns On Collected Fines

I offered HB1268 which requires the governing body of a city, town, or village to prepare and send to the department an annual report of the fines and court costs collected and the entity’s general revenue for the year. If fines and court costs exceed the 35% limit, the entity must include with the report the payment of any excess revenues. The department director is required to disburse the excess to the schools of that county. Failure to send the annual report or excess revenue to the department director will result in the city, town, or village being subject to a civil penalty of up to $1,000.

I also presented HB 1291 to the Professional Registration Committee. It requires a person conducting a home inspection to be licensed by the Division of Professional Registration within the Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration.

The House passed HB1104 which would require a photo ID to vote. Measures are in the bill for provisional ballots for anyone not having a photo ID and the state would accept the cost of providing the ID.

HB1311 also moved to the Senate this week. It authorizes a state and local sales and use tax exemption on items related to new data storage centers.

Rodney Tucker and Steve Snelling came to the Capitol Wednesday representing North Kansas City Beverage.

Doug Crews, the former publisher from Lawson was also here to represent Newspaper Publishers and Editors. He is now in Columbia.

I also met Representative Ron Schieber’s Legislative Assistant John Morelli, a Parkhill graduate. He beamed with excitement to tell me Troy Snelling was his teacher and Troy inspired him to become involved in this profession. We have found that Troy has touched the lives of many students with his teaching techniques.


Do you really understand your auto coverage? We are debating some uninsured motorist bills and I have added an attachment for your review. If you have only liability and someone damaged your car in the middle of the night and drove off, your coverage would not pay for the repairs. Know your coverage.

In the District

Sally and I attended the Farris Theatre on February 3rd for a special picture with over 400 people. Last Friday, I was one of the judges for the Chili Cook-off at Valley Manor in Excelsior Springs.
