Current Bill Summary

SB 755 - This act clarifies employment security of owner/operators of motor vehicles that are leased or contracted to common or contract carriers. This act specifically defines "owners" of motor vehicles for the purposes of unemployment compensation. The act also stipulates that certain owners and operators, operating under certificates issued by the Missouri Department of Transportation or by the United States Department of Transportation, are not employees under the act. The act also updates references to the defunct Motor Carrier and Railroad Safety Division and the Interstate Commerce Commission by replacing them with the current departments that have subsumed their functions: the Missouri Department of Transportation and the United States Department of Transportation.
