    I move that House Bill 1055 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 4, line 2; (09)MO105505.4. -->     Page 4, line 2, delete "Every" and insert " Except as provided in subsection (b), every".
    Page 4, between lines 9 and 10, begin a new paragraph and insert:
    " (b) Every engineer or other person in charge of or operating an engine:
        (1) who fails or neglects to comply with section 1 of this chapter; and
        (2) whose failure or neglect to comply with section 1 of this chapter results in injury or damage to property;
shall be held personally liable to the state for a penalty of not less than two hundred fifty dollars ($250) nor more than five thousand dollars ($5,000). A penalty for which a person is liable under this subsection may be recovered in a civil action brought by the state in the circuit or superior court of the county in which the crossing involved in the engineer's or other person's noncompliance with section 1 of this chapter is located.
