House Bill 489

All, Tim Schmitz from ICC will be speaking next Tuesday in favor of this bill to a special House committee. I will simply copy his email and documents. If you do support this measure, please let it be known.

Good afternoon,

I wanted to let you know that I will be attending the House Special Committee on Small Business next Tuesday afternoon in Jefferson City.  They are scheduled to hear HB489 which I will testify in favor of.  The Bill states that any community/county in Missouri that elects to regulate pools/spas, shall use the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code.  It allows for updates to the code as well as local Amendments.

This Bill came about from pool contractors who have seen some rather interesting construction over the years.  They would like to see a model code used in any community that regulates pools and spas.   This will allow consistency in design and construction, not to mention the safety built into the Code for the consumer.

I’m attaching a few documents for your review in case you are interested in this legislation.  The Bill is here and is extremely similar to legislation that was signed into law in Texas in ’19.  If you would like to show your support for this Bill, the link to submit your comments is here.
