The Missouri Outdoor Advertising Restriction Act, also known as Proposition A, was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Missouri as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have prohibited the construction of most new outdoor advertising and further restricted existing outdoor advertising along all highways in Missouri. The measure also would have increased the authority of any city, county or local zoning authority to regulate outdoor advertising and to prohibit the removal of trees and vegetation located on public rights of way.[1][2]
