The County Commissioners Association of Missouri (CCAM) recently announced that six legislators have been particularly helpful in their commitment to improving county government operations, not only for the most recently concluded 2016 session of the General Assembly, but also for work done in the past few years.
The CCAM board of directors voted in May to honor the lawmakers who have truly attempted to advance primary county bills, even though some did not make it through the legislative process.
In addition to Sen. Mike Parson (R-28), Sen. David Sater (R-29), Rep. Tom Flanigan (R-163), Rep. Denny Hoskins (R-54), and Rep. Jeanie Lauer (R-32), Rep. Lyndall Fraker (R-137), of Marshfield, will be presented with the County Advocate Award, at 9 a.m. Monday, June 27, in the Webster County Courthouse lobby.
Rep. Fraker’s HB 1817, which would have extended the sunset on the County Budget Law was held up at the end of the session. Fraker assured county commissioners that this would be one of his top priorities next year, and said he would make sure it got done early in the session. Unlike cities and the state, county governing bodies could not amend their annual budgets to reflect a decrease during revenue shortfalls. Several years ago, they won the authority to do so; however, that authority is scheduled to end on July 1.
In a show of appreciation for the local government/state partnership shaped by these legislators, the County Commissioners Association of Missouri is pleased to honor them.
CCAM was formed in 1983 by 330 commissioners in 110 Missouri counties. Only the charter counties of St. Charles, St. Louis, Jefferson and Jackson are excused from membership because they do not operate under a commission form of government. All administrative duties for CCAM are performed by the staff of the Missouri Association of Counties, which is headquartered in Jefferson City.
