Board Rule Amendment

An amendment to Board Rule 1-6 was adopted by the MOSERS Board of Trustees on February 21, 2019 and shall take effect on March 29, 2019. 

The proposed revisions to Board Rule 1-6 “Board Member Designees” assist in clarifying the statutory authority in Sections 37.010 and 30.120, RSMo. Per these statutes, the Commissioner of Administration and State Treasurer may delegate to subordinates or appoint employees, respectively, to assist them in their duties under the law. Under the proposed revisions, the Commission of Administration and the State Treasurer may delegate their duties, as a member of the MOSERS Board of Trustees, to any subordinate or employee, who has been properly appointed or delegated duties under the relevant statute. The proposed revisions also add documentation requirements.

You may submit written comments regarding this amendment to MOSERS Chief Counsel at any time prior to March 29, 2019. The Board will consider any comments received and has the authority to take additional action as it deems appropriate regarding these rules.
