The Missouri Budget Cuts School Exemption Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have exempt schools from budget cuts made by the governor by removing "the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from the governor's budget-cutting authority." Sen. Ryan Silvey (R-17) sponsored the measure in the Missouri General Assembly, where it was known as Senate Joint Resolution 45.[1]

Support

Sen. Ryan Silvey was the sponsor of the measure in the legislature.[1]

Path to the ballot

At the time of SJR 45's introduction, either chamber of the Missouri General Assembly was allowed to propose an amendment. A majority of members of both chambers would have had to approve it to place the measure on a statewide ballot for a popular vote. The measure was approved in the Senate on February 27, 2014. The measure, however, was not voted upon by the House before the end of the legislative session.[2]
