Agree or not, and we've tried to present both sides of this issue . . . This legal move is easily the most serious effort to change current Missouri law in favor of Kansas City supporters of a higher minimum wage because it bypasses the Republican majority in Jeff City and puts the decision in the hands of judges.
Check the dox FIRST on TKC:
The case has been docketed for oral argument. After examination of the file, the Court believes the issues in the case may be adequately presented . . .
This effort was started by Rev. Sam Mann and a coalition of clergy and legal activists who previously attempted to change Missouri minimum wage law by way of citizen initiative petition.
TKC FIRST reported and posted a copy of the claim that could change the course of the minimum wage fight.
Check on of the most interesting passages which provides the basis for the claim . . .
"The Court’s reliance on both statutes as support for its decision is misplaced because both statutes are unconstitutional. With regard to §67.1571 RSMo, the Missouri Legislature passed §67.1571 RSMo, as part of the Community Improvement District Act (the “Act”). The underlying purpose of the Act, §67.1400 RSMo through §67.1571 RSMo, was to provide mechanisms for forming and regulating community improvement districts throughout the state.
As such, the control of wages throughout the state simply does not fit within the Act’s stated purposes. Similarly, the stated purposes of House Bill 722 were to amend chapters 260 and 285, RSMo, by adding a new section to each statute. Each statute deals with entirely different subject matters. In effect, the Missouri Legislature appeared to believe that it could address two different subject matters in two different statutes masquerading under the common theme they are prohibitions on municipalities. House Bill 722 was passed by the Missouri Legislature after an override of the governor’s veto on September 16, 2015 . . ."
