The Missouri Campaign Contribution Limits Act, also known as Proposition A, was on the November 8, 1994 ballot in Missouri as an initiated state statute, where it was approved. The measure enacted a law to limit campaign contributions to persons or committees by persons or committees to $100 and $200 per election cycle, depending on the population of the political district. The measure also limited contributions to $300 for state-candidates and required disclosure by contributors of employer or occupation when contributing more than $25 per person.[1][2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall a law be enacted to limit campaign contributions to persons or committees by persons or committees per election cycle to $100 and $200 depending on the population of the political district and to $300 for statewide candidates; require disclosure by contributors of employer or occupation when contributing in excess of $25 per person; within 90 days of the election to fill the office, require contributions, in excess of expenses, that are 10 times the maximum amount allowed be returned to the contributors or remitted to Missouri Ethics Commission; establish a commission on fair elections; allow persons to file complaints alleging violations of the contribution limit? The administrative impact of this proposal would largely duplicate that of recently passed legislation. [3]
