  5.  The goals of the task force shall address:

  (1)  The disparity in taxation that resulted from the Missouri Supreme Court's decision in Street v.

  (2)  The need for local jurisdictions to continue to receive revenue to provide vital services restored by S.B. 23, effective July 5, 2013; and

  (3)  The need to avoid placing Missouri dealers of motor vehicles, outboard motors, boats, and trailers at a competitive disadvantage to non-Missouri dealers of motor vehicles, outboard motors, boats, and trailers.

  6.  The task force shall:

  (1)  Review evidence regarding the methods to address the goals of the task force;

  (2)  Review the methods used by other states to address the goals of the task force;

  (3)  Review the impact of the disparity of treatment on Missouri dealers; and

  (4)  Develop legislation that will not discriminate against Missouri dealers and will safeguard local revenue to provide vital local services.

  7.  On or before December 31, 2017, the task force shall submit a report on its findings to the governor and general assembly.  The report shall include any dissenting opinions in addition to any majority opinions.

  8.  The task force shall expire on January 1, 2018, or upon submission of a report under subsection 7 of this section, whichever is earlier.
