The Missouri Spending Limit Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

The measure would have prohibited lawmakers from increasing spending by more than the annual rise in the Consumer Price Index, plus population growth. Additionally, state revenues that exceed spending limits would first be directed towards paying down public debt, remaining funds would then go into the reserve fund. If funds still remained then they would be used to temporarily reduce income taxes.[1][2]
