According the Missouri secretary of state's fiscal note:
- State and local governmental entities could have annual lost revenue estimated of at least $17 million if the proposal results in significant business closures. Changes in economic activity could offset these potential losses by an unknown amount.
The measure was sponsored by Missourians for Responsible Lending.
Path to the ballot
The supporting group had until May 4, 2014 to turn in the required amount of valid signatures. Missouri law states that signatures for initiated state statutes must be obtained from registered voters equal to five percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts. This amounts to a minimum of 98,618 valid signatures, depending on which districts signatures are gathered from.
