Section A. Chapter 701, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 701.200, to read as follows:
701.200. 1. For purposes of this section, the following terms shall mean:
(1) “On-site sewage disposal system”, the same meaning as defined in section 701.025;
(2) “Religious organization”, a church, synagogue, mosque, or other entity that has or would qualify for federal tax-exempt status as a nonprofit religious organization under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
2. Any on-site sewage disposal system of a building or facility owned by a religious organization and used for a religious purpose that does not serve a school or day-care facility shall be exempt from all rules relating to on-site sewage disposal systems unless such system is determined to present a threat to groundwater or public health.
3. Notwithstanding this section or any provision of law to the contrary, no religious organization shall be required to replace, change, upgrade, or otherwise be compelled to alter an existing on-site sewage disposal system installed prior to August 28, 2015, unless such system is determined to present a threat to groundwater or public health.
