The Missouri Transportation Sales and Use Tax Amendment did not appear on the November 4, 2014 election ballot in the state of Missouri as an initiated constitutional amendment. This measure would have implemented a sales and use tax, with the revenue going toward the decreasing budget of the Missouri Department of Transportation.[1]

The supporting group had until May 4, 2014, to turn at least 170,000 valid signatures. Missouri law states that signatures must be obtained from registered voters equal to eight percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts.[1]

Around February 3, supporters of the measure suspended efforts to put the measure on the ballot, pending the action of the legislature. Bill McKenna, a former member of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission and treasurer of the Missourians for Safe Transportation and New Jobs, said of the measure, "It’s not completely dead but it is not as enthusiastic as it was when we first filed it." Since the effort to put this issue before voters was killed in the legislature by a Republican filibuster, the group was expected to continue the process of getting the initiative on the November 4, 2014 ballot.[1]
