Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Authorizes the State to issue bonds to fund distributions by the Missouri Clean Water Commission of water and sewer grants or loans to counties, municipalities, sewer and water districts for design, construction or improvements to public sewage collection and treatment facilities, drinking water systems and stormwater control projects.

Assuming the general assembly authorizes the issuance of these bonds, the fiscal impact of this constitutional amendment to the state is approximately $17,100,000 annually in bond principal and interest payments and other costs over a 35 year period. Local governments which choose to participate will incur some of these costs. [3]
