Missouri Voter Approved Laws Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The proposed measure would have changed the laws regarding the repeal or modification of a measure passed by voters. Two years following voter approval of a ballot measure the legislature would have required a two-thirds majority vote in order to change the measure. For the next two years, lawmakers would have needed a four-sevenths majority vote.
The measure was sponsored by Rep. Scott Sifton.
The proposal was developed shortly following the submission of proposals to amend and repeal a 2010 ballot measure that amended the state's dog-breeding laws. The measure was approved by voters following a 51.6% vote.
Path to the ballot
In order to qualify for the ballot, the measure required approval by a majority of the members of each chamber of the Missouri General Assembly. As of January 12, 2012 the bill was not in queue to be heard by the General Assembly.
