The Missouri Campaign and Finance Disclosure Act, also known as Proposition 1, was on the November 5, 1974 ballot in Missouri as an initiated state statute, where it was approved. The measure provided for a new campaign financing and election law to replace portions of the corrupt practices act. The measure also limited contributions and expenditures in elections for public office, required reporting of such contributions and expenditures, required disclosure of economic interests of a candidate and his family, as well as gifts and income received by a candidate and his family. In addition, the measure created a bipartisan election commission to administer the act and penalties for violations.[1][2]
