  • Blunt, Rounds Introduce Bill To Allow Community Bankers To Better Serve Rural Areas

    U.S. Sens. Roy Blunt and Mike Rounds, R-S.D., a member of the Senate Banking Committee, have introduced legislation to support and strengthen lending in local communities. The Community Bank Access to Capital Act of 2015 would roll back burdensome financial regulations to make it easier for community banks to serve their customers, who often reside in rural areas with fewer lending options. 
  • Nixon Vetoes Legislation On Small Loan Fee Increase, Nondeposit Trust Companies

    Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed two measures supported by MBA during the 2015 state legislative session. Senate Bill 345 would have increased consumer loan fees. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Jay Wasson, R-Nixa, and was handled in the House by Rep. Tony Dugger, R-Hartville. House Bil 1098 addressed nondeposit trust reciprocity. It was sponsored by Rep. Sandy Crawford, R-Buffalo, and was handled in the Senate by Sen. Will Kraus, R-Lee’s Summit. Nixon wrote veto letters for Senate Bill 345 and House Bill 1098.

  • Nixon Signs Electronic Lien Release, ABLE Bills

    Gov. Jay Nixon recently signed legislation that allows the Missouri Department of Revenue to establish an electronic lien release system. House Bill 524 was sponsored by Rep. Tony Dugger, R-Hartville, and Sen. Mike Cunningham, R-Rogersville, handled the bill in the Senate. The bill was among several relating to local governments and motor vehicles.

    Nixon also recently signed Senate Bill 174 creating the Missouri Achieving a Better Life Experience  program. The Missouri ABLE program allows a person with disabilities, or their family, to open a tax-exempt savings account for the purpose of paying expenses related to the disability. Under the program, anyone can make a tax-deductible contribution of up to $8,000 for an individual or $16,000 for married couples to another person’s Missouri ABLE account. The Missouri State Treasurer’s Office and the newly created Missouri ABLE Board, which must include a member with depository banking experience, will administer the ABLE program. Bankers may want to consider the ABLE program as an estate and trust planning resource for customers with disabled family members.

The “white collar” exemptions include the executive, administrative, professional, outside sales and computer employee exemptions from the FLSA requirement that all employees be paid overtime wages for time worked more than 40 hours per week.
