Toll-free number for information on registered sexual offenders, contents, procedure, publication--rulemaking authority.

43.533. 1. The highway patrol shall, subject to appropriation, operate a toll-free telephone number in order to disseminate registration information provided by individuals who are required to register under sections 589.400 to 589.425, and receive information from persons regarding the residency of a registered sexual offender. The information available via the telephone number shall include only information that offenders are required to provide under section 589.407. When the highway patrol provides such information regarding a sexual offender, the patrol personnel shall advise the person making the inquiry that positive identification of a person believed to be a sexual offender cannot be established unless a fingerprint comparison is made, and that it is illegal to use such information regarding a registered sexual offender to facilitate the commission of a crime. The toll-free telephone number shall be published on the highway patrol's sexual offender registry website maintained under section 43.650.

2. The patrol shall promulgate rules to effect the enforcement of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2006, shall be invalid and void.
