Randolph County Commission Voted Not To Adopt SB 190

The Randolph County Commission voted not to adopt the provisions of Senate Bill 190 this week. That gives Missouri counties the option of freezing the property tax on the primary residence of anyone eligible for Social Security. Presiding Commissioner Sid Conklin said it would negatively impact county schools.

Conklin said there is too much uncertainty of the fiscal impact of the law.

On KWIXland This Morning, Conklin said if state legislators clean up the existing language and present a more definitive approach to providing tax relief to senior citizens, then the Commission can re-visit the measure.
