Jefferson City — In addition to the regular appropriations measures, other new laws relate to how state funding is handled. Senate Bill 210 extends the sunset on certain health care provider reimbursement allowance taxes and modifies provisions relating to MO HealthNet and Disproportionate Share Hospital payments. Other new laws come from House Bills 17, 18 and 19 — which relate to capital improvements projects — and House Bill 384, which changes laws relating to taxation. We’ve included actualities from Sen. Kurt Schaefer, R-Columbia, and Senate Minority Floor Leader Joseph Keaveny, D-St. Louis, in this feature report narrated by Senate Communications Officer Dean Morgan.
