TKC MUST SEE!!! CITY HALL PENS EPIC CHRISTMAS LIST FOR KANSAS CITY!!!



We're gonna wait one more day until we totally give in to the holiday season cult of Santa but for now here's some relevant information regarding policy priorities for Kansas City . . .

CHECK OUR TKC HIGHLIGHTS OF KANSAS CITY LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES!!!

Per ushe, we've snagged the most interesting naughty bits and provided links to the rest . . .

First up, Kansas City’s legislative major priorities and positions on matters for the 2018 session of the Missouri General Assembly

Earnings Tax. Oppose any effort to undermine the Earnings Tax and support the extension of the Earnings Tax renewal period from 5 years to 20 years.

Buck O’Neil Bridge. Support state funding for the Buck O’Neil Bridge.

Discriminatory Laws. Oppose legislation that would be reasonably viewed as discriminatory toward any citizen of the State of Missouri and harmful to its economy.

Tort Liability. Support amending Missouri Revised Statutes Section 84.330 to eliminate the City’s liability for the torts of KCPD police officers.

Film Rebate Program. Support reinstating the Missouri Film rebate program as a tool for economic development.

And then . . .

Kansas City’s legislative priorities and positions on matters that may come before the 115th United States Congress, 2nd Session, in 2018.

Private Activity Bonds and Advanced Refunding Bonds. Oppose legislation that would eliminate Private Activity Bonds or repeal Advanced Refunding Bonds. Private Activity Bonds are essential to a number of City infrastructure projects and expected to be a significant tool in financing the new KCI airport approved by voters earlier this month.

Bannister Federal Complex – Support implementation of the funding to demolish the vacant Bannister Federal Complex, safely clean up the buildings and ground contamination, and transfer the site to a private developer to redevelop the 300-acre site primarily for industrial use, with the possibility of commercial use outside of the flood wall in the southwest corner at Bannister and Troost.

Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Program. Support the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program.

Immigration Reform. Support extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and comprehensive reform of current immigration laws to allow undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States to earn legal status and apply for citizenship.

Anti-Violence Funding. Support increased anti-violence funding for grants that will assist the Kansas City No Violence Alliance and the City’s Aim4Peace Program and pursue funding for initiatives that will reduce violent crime in Kansas City.

And so . . .

HOW WILL THIS AMBITIOUS CITY HALL HOLIDAY SEASON WISH LIST IMPACT KANSAS CITY???

You decide . . .

Or we could just fix our infrastructure, roads and put up more street lights.

There's very little of that covered in these priorities. Just more from the development gun grabber agenda.

Just buck O’Neil bridge and toy train are listed as infrastructure, all downtown priorities, nothing for the rest of the city.... again

Earnings tax from 5yrs to 20, are they kidding me?

Who pays the police lawsuits? We do, this has nothing to do with making them pay for them when they get their money from us. Does sLIE hate the police that much that he thinks seperateting them from kcmo is going to change anything?

How much more money can you give the worthless anti crime organizations that do nothing?

Jesus. I thought bridge repair fell under infrastructure? You monkeys will find anything to complain about.

Tax and spend... Tax and spend. Just when we have someone in the White House who is tough enough to fight for tighter regulations on spending, you come out with this. The Cities and States need to stand on their own two feet. We need to eliminate all these give aways. If the Cities and States had to stand on their own two feet, they would be better managed and we wouldn't be paying for a trolley folly or a downtown hotel. Money would be spent where it is really needed.

All of these are the priorities of the developers and the grifters. The citizens be damned.

Many of these dance around what they really mean. For instance, the Discrimination position basically would give the NAACP and other race baiters a veto power over state legislation. The position labeled DACA goes far beyond childhood arrivals to demand amnesty for ALL illegals, regardless whether they invaded as children or adults.

The city should keep its nose out of national issues and devote its energies and funds to maintaining and improving infrastructure to benefit all its citizens, not just the favored few.

The Cities have more power than they'll admit. This keeps the pleb's in line and focused on not freezing this winter. Meanwhile, the couple dozen that manage to be in the inner circle this winter will have nice and cocktails throughout the holidays and maybe they can put in a good word for a family member that's eager to climb the latter.
