Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens signs 2 measures sponsored by Sen. Dan Hegeman

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens signed two measures this week during the legislative sessions that were sponsored by State Senator Dan Hegeman, a Republican from Cosby. Both bills will take effect August 28.

Senate Bill 111 requires a candidate for the office of public administrator to provide to the election authority a copy of a signed affidavit that indicates that he or she meets the bonding requirements. After being elected to office a public administrator must then enter into bond to the state in a sum of no less than 10 thousand dollars. Hegeman says the bill comes up because of a situation that happened in the past.

Hegeman says this measure modifies provisions regarding bonds issued by a political subdivision, qualifications for candidates of public office and limited liability companies who own property in certain cities and guardianships.

Senate Bill 283 deals with special road districts, which are political subdivisions established by residents at the local level for the purpose of maintaining public roads under the districts' jurisdiction. Hegeman says the significant flooding events over the past few years have caused residents to move to other parts of the county.

Hegeman adds this bill allows a voter who is registered to sign a petition to place a levy on the ballot or to serve as a commissioner for the special road district.
