The Missouri Citizen's Commission for Elected Official Salaries Amendment, also known as Amendment 5, was on the November 8, 1994 ballot in Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure created the Citizen's Commission in order to set compensation for all elected state officials, as opposed to being set by a vote of the general assembly.[1][2]


A proposed amendment in 2000 to change the language of this amendment was defeated.

Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall the compensation for all elected state officials, including members of the general assembly and judges, be set by the Citizen's Commission established by this amendment rather than set by vote of the general assembly? Compensation changes (increases or decreases) would depend on actions of the Commission and the legislature. [3]
