Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
To be considered in the August 8, 2006 primary election. Proposed by the 93rd General Assembly (First Regular Session) SJR 1
Shall Article IV, Section 47(a), (b), and (c) of the Missouri Constitution be amended to:
A) reauthorize for ten years the one-tenth percent sales/use tax for (1) soil and water conservation; (2) state parks and historic sites; and
B) resubmit this issue to a vote every ten years or at an earlier special election?
The proposed constitutional amendment continues until 2016, but does not increase, the existing sales and use tax of one-tenth of one percent that is set to terminate in 2008. The tax would generate approximately $82 million annually for soil and water conservation efforts and operation of the state park system.
