Missouri State Assessors' Association presents award to Nodler

The Missouri State Assessors' Association honored Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, last week. From the news release:

Senator Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, was recently recognized by the Missouri State Assessors’ Association for his efforts during the 2010 legislative session. The award was presented at the Assessors’ Association’s annual conference in Branson on September 9.

“I am honored to be recognized by the Missouri State Assessors’ Association,” said Sen. Nodler. “The role of the assessor is one that fulfills a constitutional obligation in this state, and keeping the assessment system equitable takes the work of our dedicated local assessors throughout Missouri.”

In particular, Sen. Nodler was recognized for his work on Senate Bill 588, which protected local assessors in many counties from facing an unfunded mandate. The bill extends the amount of time local assessors have to meet projected tax liability requirements before they have to provide tax liability notices stating the increased assessed value. With the passage of this legislation, assessors are now able to wait until they receive software from the State Tax Commission, which is necessary to provide such notices.

“Senate Bill 588 ensures that the public will have access to information about their projected tax liability, without placing unnecessary financial stress on our local assessors’ offices,” said Sen. Nodler. “It is an issue of fairness, and I was pleased to help our assessors in this way.”

This one piece of legislation will save counties throughout the state hundreds of thousands of dollars annually by not having to send out notices about possible increases in property assessments.

Very good job Senator Nodler.Thank you.

Too bad the voters did not have the good sense to send you Congress to work on some of the same spending problems in Washington.

I can only hope the people's choice can get a quick grasp on how the legislative process works and can get similiar results.He'll damn sure have to work at it.
