The Missouri General Assembly Reorganization and Legislative Updates Amendment, also known as Issue 3, was on the February 26, 1924 ballot in Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was adopted.[1]

The measure made several changes to Article IV of the Missouri constitution. It provided a method for forming districts in cities and counties entitled to more than one representative, gave redistricting power to the executive branch, and gave women power to hold office. It also limited expenditures for state employees to $400 per day and increased pay for the General Assembly.[2]
