The Missouri Voter Approved Laws Amendment will not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

The proposed measure would have changed the laws regarding the repeal or modification of a measure passed by voters. Two years following voter approval of a ballot measure the legislature would have required a two-thirds majority vote in order to change the measure. For the next two years, lawmakers would have needed a four-sevenths majority vote.[1]

The measure was sponsored by Rep. Scott Sifton.

The proposal was developed shortly following the submission of proposals to amend and repeal a 2010 ballot measure that amended the state's dog-breeding laws. The measure was approved by voters following a 51.6% vote.

In order to qualify for the ballot, the measure required approval by a majority of the members of each chamber of the Missouri General Assembly. As of January 12, 2012 the bill was not in queue to be heard by the General Assembly.[2]
