Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to allow and set limitations on stem cell research, therapies, and cures which will:

- Ensure Missouri patients have access to any therapies and cures, and allow Missouri researchers to conduct any research, permitted under federal law;

- Ban human cloning or attempted cloning;

- Require expert medical and public oversight and annual reports on the nature and purpose of stem cell research;

- Impose criminal and civil penalties for any violations; and

- Prohibit state or local governments from preventing or discouraging lawful stem cell research, therapies and cures?

The proposed constitutional amendment would have an estimated annual fiscal impact on state and local governments of $0-$68,916. [3]
