TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! MISSOURI BILL THREATENS KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY #NEWKCI AIRPORT LEGACY!!!
Critics of the new Kansas City new airport endeavor enure "slap-in-the-face-so-hard-your-mother-feels-it" insult after injury when they realize that #NewKCI could be named after Mayor Sly James. Accordingly, a bit of legislation from an underdog Blue Springs Republican might address this concern.
The bill is short and sweet and doesn't have much of a chance given that the GOP also loves living tribute . . .
"No state land or building shall be designated in honor of an individual unless such person has been deceased for more than two years."
Big money loophole . . .
"This section shall not apply if money is donated to a state entity in exchange for the right to name state land or buildings."
Rep. Dan Stacy of Blue Springs authored this masterpiece with what looks like the best of intentions that hopes to deter politicians from spending public funds on personal legacy projects.
Because the new airport doesn't seem to be taking donations, then this long shot legislation might keep Mayor Sly's name off the new plastic & glass triumph of the Greater KC Chamber of Commerce.
In the meantime, look for continued fighting on this topic and another sketchy financial proposal that will be foist upon frustrated voters.
