Pike County Senate Bill 40

Background:

Welcome to Pike County Senate Bill 40!

Senate Bill 40 is enabling legislation passed by the Missouri state legislature in 1969, and is designed to allow individual counties in Missouri to approve a tax levy to provide needed assistance and support to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in areas of residential, employment, and related services.

Parents and other advocates from Pike County were instrumental in helping to get Senate Bill 40 approved in 1969, and Pike County was the very first county in Missouri to adopt the “Senate Bill 40” enabling legislation in May of 1970. Today, nearly 90 counties throughout Missouri have passed this enabling legislation.

Mission Statement: “To help Pike County citizens with developmental disabilities succeed.”
