Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall Missouri statutes be amended to impose additional sales and use taxes of one-half cent on the dollar and an additional motor fuel tax of four cents per gallon, for highway and transportation purposes until July, 2013, unless extended by a vote of the people, and establish an inspector general within the department of transportation?

An additional one-half cent sales/use tax on tangible personal property and four cent per gallon motor fuel tax for highways, roads, bridges and public transportation generated total annual tax revenues of approximately:

State: $ 431,000,000
Local: $ 52,000,000
