The Missouri House of Representatives Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure proposes reducing the number of members and districts of the House of Representatives.[1]

A total of four versions of the initiative have been confirmed for circulation by the Missouri Secretary of State.[2]

The initiatives were proposed by Russell Purvis of Kansas City, Missouri.[1]

Text of measure

The ballot title for the petition, which would amend Article III of the Missouri Constitution, reads:[1]

Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to reduce the number of members and districts of the Missouri House of Representatives from 163 to 103 beginning with the 2023 General Assembly?

Annual estimated savings to state government would be at least $4.7 million. No fiscal impact is expected for local governments.
