MPA LEGISLATION REPORT
March 2001

Greetings! House Bill 436 was passed out of the Local Government and Related Matters by a vote of 13-2 on February 28th. Representative's Dolan and Hohulin voted against it. The Members of the Senate Transportation Committee are really being pressured by the Telecommunications lobbyists not to pass Senate Bill 324 out of Committee.

My understanding is that they have even threatened to withdraw their support (Dollars) if the bill passes out of the committee.

Now, here's what we need to do: It is very important that we make every effort to talk our Legislatures and Senators that we as Taxpayers and Pilots expect them to support these Bills.

Now, we need to contact our Representatives who represent you in Missouri, tell them to vote in favor of HB 436 when it comes before the full House of Representatives.

Next, contact your State Senators who represent you in Missouri tell them to vote in favor of SB 324 if we can get it out of Committee.

This Very Important that each and every MPA Member get involved now, so we can protect our Missouri Airports. I urge you to get involved now! We can make a difference, cause we have a Strong Voice in Missouri Aviation!
Keep those letters, e-mails, and phone calls going to the State Capital, they are listening to us every day. We just need more phone calls and letters going to the House of Representatives, and State Senators in Jefferson City.

Let's give them our Voice!

Now, In Conclusion we need to contact Governor Holden, and ask him to sign these two bills into law when they come across his desk. It's HB436 & SB324.

Stay Tuned for More Updates!
