The Branson Board of Aldermen passed a resolution outlining the city’s legislative priorities for 2022 at their regular October 26 Board of Aldermen meeting, in an effort to state the city’s stance on a number of issues that will be heard on a State level that will have impact on the immediate needs of the City of Branson.

The City’s 2022 legislative priorities are as follows:

  • Removing a ticket reseller loophole so that taxes are collected on the price paid on tickets, regardless of who brokers the transaction.
  • Support changes to Chapter 315 of the Missouri Revised Statutes to improve the health, safety and living conditions of permanent guests in lodging establishments.
  • Welcome the passage and adoption of statewide building codes to establish minimum standards to increase the safety and integrity of structures, thereby reducing deaths, injuries and property damage.
  • Seek the establishment of statewide contractor licensing to establish certain criteria to prove reasonable competency in specific building trades like electrical, mechanical and plumbing.
  • Support the establishment of provisions under Chapter 479 of the Missouri Revised Statutes to allow for the opportunity to create circuit-wide municipal court divisions that all municipalities can share in the prosecution of municipal ordinance violations.

To see an explanation of each legislative priority, go to the “Agendas & Minutes” section of the city’s website, BransonMo.Gov, click on “HTML Agenda Packet” for the Oct 26 Board of Aldermen meeting, then click on this item (item #16) in the agenda.
