The Missouri State Land Bank Amendment, also known as Issue 2 , was on the November 7, 1916 ballot in Missouri as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1]

The measure would have empowered the legislature of Missouri to create a state land bank. The state land bank would have power to loan money secured by deed of trust on agricultural lands, issue bonds, and authorize the appropriation of one million dollars out of the State Treasury. These funds and bonds would be free from taxation.[2]
