Local Measures

The Missouri Riverboat Gambling Proposition, also known as Proposition A, was a legislatively-referred state statute on the November 3, 1992 ballot in Missouri, where it was approved.

Aftermath

The resulting law from this proposition was struck down by the State Supreme Court under a ruling that games of chance can only become legal through changes to the state's constitution. [1]

In a 1994, two constitutional amendments were proposed, one in an April special election which was defeated, and one in the November general election which was approved. Expansions on the November, 1994 amendment were put before before voters in 1998 and in 2004.
