A new law regarding ambulance districts and operators is now on the books. Governor Holden has signed into law revisions to laws pertaining to ambulance districts in the state. Mark Alexander is president of the Missouri Ambulance Assocation, a group representing ambulance operators in the state. He says the new law allows ambulance districts to seek extra sources of revenue such as local sales taxes – a reality in light of cuts in funding from federal and state sources. And, Alexander says getting sales taxes will help rural districts whichmight not have a lot of property to tax but do have a lot of tourism dollars that come through the area.
