Referendums and Ballot Measures
Amendment 1 - Changes for criteria for redrawing state legislative districts, campaign contributions, limit on gifts, serving as paid lobbyists, fundraising, and open proceedings
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:change process and criteria for redrawing state legislative districts during reapportionment;change limits on campaign contributions that candidates for state legislature can accept from individuals or entities;establish a limit on gifts that state legislators, and their employees, can accept from paid lobbyists;prohibit state legislators, and their employees, from serving as paid lobbyists for a period of time;prohibit political fundraising by candidates for or members of the state legislature on State property; andrequire legislative records and proceedings to be open to the public?State governmental entities estimate annual operating costs may increase by $189,000. Local governmental entities expect no fiscal impact.
Amendment 2 - Use of marijuana for medical purposes
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and create regulations and licensing/certification procedures for marijuana and marijuana facilities;impose a 4 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana; anduse funds from these taxes for health and care services for military veterans by the Missouri Veterans Commission and to administer the program to license/certify and regulate marijuana and marijuana facilities?This proposal is estimated to generate annual taxes and fees of $18 million for state operating costs and veterans programs, and $6 million for local governments. Annual state operating costs are estimated to be $7 million.
Amendment 3 - Create regulations and licensing procedures for marijuana
