  • Gov. Jay Nixon oday signed House Bill 163, which addresses several election-related issues.
     
    Among its provisions, House Bill 163 requires a vote of the people for the sale of a municipally-owned hospital organized under Chapter 96. The legislation signed today by Gov. Nixon places the authority to sell a municipally-owned hospital in the hands of the electorate by requiring the sale to be approved by a majority of voters within that city.
     
    Additionally, HB 163 addresses other election-related issues, including primary elections for 3rd class cities with a commission form of government; elections for emergency services boards; and the position of public administrator in the City of St. Louis.
