The Missouri Decrease Number of Representatives Amendment will not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have reduced the House of Representatives from 163 members to 103 members.[1][2]

The Senate version was sponsored by Sen. Jim Lembke, while the House version was sponsored by Rep. Eric Burlison.

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. On April 7, 2011 a proposed bill, HJR 12, was defeated by a House committee.[3] However, on April 22, 2011 the Senate voted 21-12 in favor of SJR 10.[4][5] On April 28, 2011 the similar Senate measure failed to pass in a House committee.[6][7]
