The Missouri Elected Official Salaries Amendment, also known Amendment 3, was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have provided that the salaries recommended by the Citizens' Commission on Compensation for statewide elected officials, judges and legislators required an appropriation by the legislature in separate amounts not to exceed those proposed by the Commission. The measure also would have removed the Commission's authority to recommend mileage and expenses.[1][2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall the Constitution be amended to provide that salaries recommended by the Citizens’ Commission on Compensation for statewide elected officials, judges and legislators require an appropriation by the legislature in separate amounts not to exceed those proposed by the Commission and to remove the Commission’s authority to recommend mileage and expenses?

The fiscal impact of this proposal is unknown, as it will depend on the amount of compensation proposed by the Citizens’ Commission and the actions of the Governor and General Assembly on future budgets. [3]
