The future of a possible landfill in south Kansas City is now up to the Missouri Senate. On Wednesday, members of the Missouri House passed a bill that could kill plans for the rumored landfill.
It now moves to the Senate. The next step is for the bill to be assigned to a Senate committee.
The bill, introduced by Rep. Mike Haffner, R-Pleasant Hill, seeks to place a 1-mile buffer between landfills and their neighboring communities. The bill would double the buffer zone from one-half mile to 1 mile.
