SB 125 - This act establishes the "Missouri Municipal Government Expenditure Database," to be maintained by the State Treasurer in conjunction with the Office of Administration. For each fiscal year beginning on or after June 1, 2020, the database shall include detailed information about a given municipality's expenditures and the vendors to whom payments were made. The database must be accessible by the public without charge and have multiple ways to search and filter the information. Municipalities with website's must provide a link to the database.
According to this act a municipality must provide the information to the State Treasurer on a quarterly basis or it will be fined $100 per day after 14 days. The fine will be collected by offsetting sales and use tax distributions due to the municipality and will be distributed to the schools of the county in the same manner that penalties, forfeitures, and fines for breaches of penal laws are distributed.
This act is identical to HB 2242 (2018).
