Text of measure

The question asked on the ballot was:

Shall Article X of the Constitution of Missouri be amended to limit yearly increases of total state revenues generated by new, increased, or broadened taxes, licenses and fees, including user fees, to twenty hundredths of one percent of the total state revenue during the prior fiscal years, unless approved by popular vote; make all increases in taxes, licenses, and fees, excluding user fees, by any political subdivision subject to voter approval; and prohibit the state from mandating tax increases on political subdivisions as a requirement for maintaining their corporate status or existing level of state funding? This proposal would require state and local spending cuts ranging from $1 billion to $5 billion annually. Cuts would affect prisons, schools, colleges, programs for the elderly, job training, highways, public health, and other services.[1]
